Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was fined $2,000, while Mark McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined $750.
They also had to surrender the firearms used that day, which the judge ordered destroyed. But Mark was able to pick up an new AR. (How many millions of AR-15s have been manufactured in the past year?)
They dropped all charges, except for a claim I instilled “imminent fear” in the mob
Which seems like the entire point of the exercise.
The McCloskey's view the misdemeanor charges as a face-saving act on the part of the gun-hating prosecutor. Buying a new AR, and posing for pictures (click thru) is a poke in the eye to that prosecutor.
Though I think I would move out of that jurisdiction.
