Clive Bundy has been locked up in a local jail for 2 years. Today the federal court set him free and order the Justice Dept. to never press these charges against him, again.
A federal judge dismissed felony conspiracy and weapons charges Monday against Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and an independent militia member. U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro, who granted a mistrial in the case last month, said Monday’s decision was based, in part, on “flagrant prosecutorial misconduct.” “A universal sense of justice has been violated,” Navarro said. Bundy stepped out of jail-issued clothing for the first time in nearly two years, donning a cowboy hat, babyblue button-down shirt, gray sport coat, blue jeans and brown boots and left the federal courthouse in Las Vegas with his arm around his wife, Carol. “I’ve got my sweetheart beside me. I’m feeling pretty good. But I’m not used to being free. I’ve been a political prisoner for right about 700 days today,” he said, after having been in federal custody since Feb. 10. “I come in this court an innocent man, and I’m going to leave an innocent man.”
