The Whitmer kidnapping trial put on hold due to COVID-19 | WJMN

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – The federal lawsuit against four men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan’s governor has been put on hold due to COVID-19.

The second week of the trial should start on Monday, but because “a significant trial participant” has tested positive for COVID-19, it will not meet again, court documents say.

“Provided there are no other complications, the Court hopes to reopen the trial on Thursday, March 17, 2022,” the court documents state.

Brandon Caserta, Barry Croft Jr., Adam Fox and Daniel Harris are each charged with kidnapping conspiracy. Croft, Fox and Harris are accused of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction. Croft and Harris are also charged with possession of an unregistered destruction device, and Harris faces a further charge of possession of an unregistered short-range rifle.
