PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The leader of a federal wildlife refuge takeover in Oregon says his group will “continue to stand” after he and six others were acquitted last week of charges in the case.
Ammon Bundy told The Oregonian/OregonLive in a phone call from the Multnomah County Detention Center Monday that it was their duty to stand.
“We did it peacefully,” Bundy said, adding, “We did it legally, and the jury’s verdicts confirmed that.”
Bundy also said the trial ended in “another example of the government not following the law” when U.S. marshals arrested his attorney for challenging the judge’s order to keep him in custody.
He called for prosecutors to drop charges against other occupiers set for February trial on the same conspiracy charge.
