The Null brothers, both 38, are from Plainwell and Shelbyville. They have both been charged by the state with providing material support for terrorist acts, and carrying or possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony.

They are among the seven men charged by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel under Michigan’s anti-terrorism act.

Earlier this month, law enforcement sources confirmed that Michael and William Null were seen in a photo originally posted on Twitter on April 30, 2020 by State Senator Dayna Polehanki at the Lansing protests against Gov. Whitmer's coronavirus lockdown.
