Sixteen Malheur NWR militia occupiers, including four still out there, are named in federal grand jury indictments for intimidating and threatening federal employees which prevented them from carrying out there jobs at the refuge. Conviction carries a six year prison sentence.
The four remaining hold-outs maintain they won’t surrender unless they’re set free and not charged with anything. They’re isolated at the refuge with a federal law enforcement contingency surrounding them. Despite their phone and internet call outs for help from vigilante groups nationwide, law enforcement says no one will be allowed to even approach the area.
