Mitchell Hunter Oakes was found not guilty on all charges by a jury on Friday morning, August 31, according to David Cooper, one of Oakes’ attorneys.
Oakes was accused of planting a bomb in his estranged wife’s car outside of an assisted living facility in Franklin in 2016.
“We are extremely pleased with the verdict and believe the evidence certainly supported that verdict,” said Cooper. “We’re certainly looking forward to getting him home now.”
Oakes was represented by attorneys David Cooper, David Komisar, and John Morris.
