Lakota Farmer Acquitted of Terrorizing, Other Charges

A Lakota farmer charged with terrorizing law enforcement officials in 2011 has been acquitted.

Defense attorney Mark Friese says a jury in Grand Forks found Rodney Brossart not guilty on one count of felony terrorizing.

Prosecutors accused Brossart of threatening officers who came to his property looking for missing cattle.

A jury in 2013 found Brossart guilty of terrorizing and misdemeanor charges.

The state Supreme Court threw out his terrorizing conviction in January, citing a mistake in jury instructions.
