Two men convicted of conspiring to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer


Michigan governor’s kidnapping plot jury ends first day of deliberations

(Reuters) – A jury on Monday ended the first day of deliberations on the retrial of two men charged with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020. Adam Fox, 39, and Barry Croft Jr., 46, face possible life in prison if convicted of kidnapping and weapons conspiracy charges in federal court in Grand Rapids, Michigan . Prosecutors accused the men of devising an elaborate plan to kidnap Democrat Whitmer, but the defense argued they were merely engaging in useless chatter.
