After all defendants in the Oregon standoff were found not guilty — Ammon Bundy and his six followers — Bundy’s lawyer Marcus Mumford was taken into custody Thursday afternoon, Katu.com reports.

The defendants were facing charges of conspiracy after taking over the Malheur National Wildlife Center in Oregon earlier this year.

After the jury handed down their verdict, the Bundy brothers Ammon and Ryan were asked by Judge Anna Brown to stay over their involvement in another standoff in Nevada.

“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken," Barr said in a statement.
