Statement By U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling Regarding Acquittal of Brandon Ziobrowski

“We respect the jury’s verdict.  But in this case the defendant posted a tweet that, on its face, offered $500 to anyone who killed a federal agent.  In 2019, over 100 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty.  The public needs to know that, regardless of today’s verdict, we will never hesitate to prosecute apparent threats against law enforcement officers.”
