“Barry Croff, 44, Adam Fox, 40, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, 23, and Brandon Caserta were all arrested in October of last year for allegedly planning to kidnap Whitmer because they were upset by her COVID-19 restrictions. The federal complaint alleges that the men planned to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home and hide her away in an undisclosed location,” Daily Mail reported.
“The government initiated this case, despite the fact that it knew there was no plan to kidnap, no operational plan, and no details about how a kidnapping would occur or what would happen afterwards,” defence lawyer Scott Graham wrote in his motion, which is 20 pages long.
“The evidence here demonstrates egregious overreaching by the government’s agents, and by the informants, those agents handled,” the motion stated. “When the government was faced with evidence showing that the defendants had no interest in a kidnapping plot, it refused to accept failure and continued to push its plan.”
The defence lawyers argued that “Dan” egged the men to move forward with the plan to kidnap Whitmer.
“Dan, while often claiming poverty, always had the resources to drive, feed, and house others whom he hoped to pull into the government plan,” the motion read.
“Dan” reportedly drove the defendants to militia-style training weekends in Wisconsin and Michigan, paying for their gas, tolls, meals, and lodging.
“So while the defendants had no interest in profit, a factor weighing in their favour here,” the motion to dismiss continued. “The government’s exploitation of its virtually unlimited resources, poured into its investigation, further underscores entrapment as a matter of law.”
