(WXMI) — Closing arguments wrapped up Friday afternoon in the trial of the four men accused of plotting to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The case has been handed to the jury for deliberation, which will begin Monday.

FOX 17 spoke with former U.S. Attorney Pat Miles and Cooley Law School Prof. Tonya Krause-Phelan on the latest developments.

For transparency, it is worth noting that Tonya's husband represents Steve Roberson, who is one of the government's confidential informants in the case. However, he did not testify during the trial. He and Tonya did not discuss the case due to attorney-client privilege, and Roberson is aware that Tonya has provided commentary and context during our interview, which can be watched in the video above.
