LAS VEGAS (AP) — A prosecutor is relying heavily on photos during closing arguments to a jury being asked to decide if four men should go to prison for decades for displaying assault-style weapons to stop federal agents from rounding up anti-government figure Cliven Bundy's cattle in April 2014.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Nadia Ahmed said Tuesday that Scott Drexler, Ricky Lovelien, Eric Parker and Steven Stewart had firearms, not flags or signs, at the confrontation near the rural Nevada town of Bunkerville.
Attorneys for the four men will summarize their defenses before the jury in Las Vegas begins deliberating on 10 conspiracy, weapon, assault on a federal agent and other charges.
Bundy, two sons and two other defendants are due for trial later this year.
Six other defendants, including two other Bundy sons, are slated for trial next year.
