Skip to comments.Bunkerville Standoff: The Last Defendant Is Sentenced-Brian Cavalier
Posted on 01/17/2019 2:41:43 AM PST by Nextrush
With Cliven Bundy, his wife Carol and Shawna Cox of the Oregon Standoff case amongthose in attendance, Brian Cavalier was sentenced at the federal courthouse in Las Vegas Tuesday.
Cavalier was sentenced to time served by US District Judge Gloria Navarro in his plea deal agreement with federal prosecutors.
Brian Cavalier was one of the hundreds who came in defense of Cliven Bundy's family following the seizure of his cattle by the Bureau of Land Management and placement of snipers around the ranch by the BLM.
The federal government was shutting down Bundy's grazing rights near his ranch in the name of protecting the desert tortoise, but evidence revealed at the trial of key defendants revealed the desert tortoise was not threatened.
The withholding of innocence proving evidence led to charges being dismissed against a large number of key defendants in the case including Bundy family members by US District Judge Gloria Navarro.
But others like Cavalier cut plea deals with federal prosecutors before that evidence was uncovered.
Judge Navarro's sentence beyond the 20 months already served in prison was one year of supervised release, ordering Cavalier to undergo substance abuse treatment and prohibiting him from communicating with others involved in the case.
There are still three men in prison in connection with Bunkerville including Jerry Delemus cutting a plea deal and the two others, Greg Burleson and Todd Engel, being convicted in a trial where the innocence proving was hidden by the federal prosecutors from their defense lawyers.
This last sentencing could if the White House is interested open the door to President Trump considering pardons related to the case for those three men and any others.
The federal prosecutors in Las Vegas are appealing the dismissal of charges against Cliven Bundy and other defendants.
Federal Bureaucraps NEVER give up, even when caught lying and obstructing justice.
Pardons? I was on board until this Bundy moron came out hard against the wall. Backstabber
My take on that is to go back to Trump’s encounter with Jim Acosta where the POTUS did say we will have to let some people into this country legally because there are jobs to be filled.
I don’t think that the Bundys and Trump are that far apart.
Trump will let people in with a wall built and the Bundys would let people in without a wall built.
Lets quote what the President said to Acosta back in November:
“I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally, you know Jim, they have to come through a process. I want it to be a process. And I want people to come in. We need the people....You know why we need the people. Because we have hundreds of companies moving in. We need the people”
That actually direct quote of the POTUS sounds a lot like Ammon Bundy or Cliven Bundy to me and the political propaganda tries to build up bigger differences than there really are.
The feds are relentless and as Nigel Farage noted while saying he loves America he doesn’t love our criminal justice system.
We are five percent of the world’s population but 20 percent of the world’s prison population Farage noted.
Nope. Not buying. I was a hard supporter of Bundy. But he pulled the typical mormon stunt and came out opposing Trump and thinks ‘a wall isn’t neighborly”. Ungrateful jackass. Mormons love mexico.
He blew it hard.
And Trump has never suggested that anyone and everyone in Mexico can freely immigrate as long as they do it legally. He said the sal would have a door- but a small one. There are already far to many Mexicans and central Americans here.
The Bundys were much more circumspect in their comments than the liberal media headlines made them out to be.
Trump said we will need to let some people in and last Friday he eased up on the H1B visa system to make it easier for folks working on those in this country to find a pathway to citizenship.
