Juror In Whitmer Trial Wanted Defendants To ‘Hang’: Defense

Juror in the attempted-kidnapping trial last month in Michigan was a 'far-left leaning," said defendants’ legal team

  • The case was a retrial last month for Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr., each of whom were found guilty of charges including conspiracy to kidnap Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer  and possession of a weapon of mass destruction.
  • Defendants’ lawyers asked Tuesday for a hearing on whether the juror committed misconduct, and for a new trial.
  • In court request, a defense team investigator states one of the juror’s coworkers had said he personally knew the juror to be “far-left leaning.”
  • Coworker also claimed to have heard that the juror said Fox and Croft were “guilty, no matter what” and would “hang” if the juror was chosen for the jury.
