Pro-life dad Mark Houck who was arrested in a terrifying FBI home raid has been acquitted in federal court.
United States of America v. Mark Houck has resulted in a victory for Houck and his defense team at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
"We are, of course, thrilled with the outcome," stated Peter Breen, Thomas More Society Executive Vice President & Head of Litigation.
"Mark and his family are now free of the cloud that the Biden administration threw upon them. We took on Goliath—the full might of the United States government—and won. The jury saw through and rejected the prosecution's discriminatory case, which was harassment from day one. This is a win for Mark and the entire pro-life movement. The Biden Department of Justice's intimidation against pro-life people and people of faith has been put in its place," Breen said.
Houck was on trial for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinics Entrances Act (FACE Act) after he shoved a pro-abortion volunteer escort who was harassing his young son.
The defense argued the law does not apply in this case and that Houck was protecting his son from verbal abuse.
He was facing up to 11 years in prison if the jury had sided with the Biden administration.
