OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) - After a 7 week federal trial, final arguments were made today in the case against Marion County Oathkeeper Kelly Meggs and 4 other defendants in Washington, DC.

Meggs did not testify in the trial.

Prosecutors today asserted that for weeks, the defendants discussed using violence to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Defense attorneys questioned prosecutors’ relative lack of evidence that the Oathkeepers had an explicit plan to attack the capitol.
