McCloskeys indicted, grand jury adds charges of tampering with evidence | News

The McCloskeys were in court Tuesday, but the case was pushed back a week because the grand jury had not rendered a decision on whether or not to indict them.

Afterward, Mark McCloskey expressed frustration with the fact no protesters were charged in the incident. 

“They broke down our gate, they trespassed on our property. Not a single one of those people are now charged with anything,” Mark McCloskey stated. “We’re charged with felonies that could cost us four years of our lives and our law license.”

McCloskey said the decision not to prosecute the trespassers shows the government has chosen to protect “criminals from honest citizens.”
