The case was a retrial last month for Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr., each of whom were found guilty of charges including conspiracy to kidnap Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and possession of a weapon of mass destruction.
Defendants’ lawyers asked Tuesday for a hearing on whether the juror committed misconduct, and for a new trial.
In court request, a defense team investigator states one of the juror’s coworkers had said he personally knew the juror to be “far-left leaning.”
Coworker also claimed to have heard that the juror said Fox and Croft were “guilty, no matter what” and would “hang” if the juror was chosen for the jury.
