Defendants in the ‘NATO 3’ trial were found not guilty of terrorism charges on Thursday. The three young men, accused by the state of Illinois of plotting violent acts at the 2012 NATO summit in Chicago, were found guilty on two counts of mob action.

Brian Jacob Church, Brent Betterly and Jared Chase were acquitted of charges including material support for terrorism, conspiracy to commit terrorism, and possession of an incendiary device with intent to commit offense of terrorism. 

The defendants were found guilty of two much lesser mob action charges. 

After nearly three weeks of trial proceedings, the jury in the case deliberated for just under eight hours before the verdict was read at around 17:15 CST. Closing arguments lasted around five hours on Thursday.
