Injustice Wins: McCloskeys Plead Guilty to Misdemeanor Charges, Forfeit Weapons

Recommended Posts


ST. LOUIS – There will be no jail time for Mark and Patricia McCloskey after the St. Louis attorneys entered surprise guilty pleas in a gun waving case that brought them international fame.

The only point of contention in St. Louis court Thursday was what to do with the McCloskeys’ guns.

Mark McCloskey wanted his rifle to be disabled and donated to charity. That’s not happening.

He pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor. His wife pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment.

They were sentenced to pay the maximum fines: $750 for him, $2,000 for her. The weapons they brandished will be destroyed as a condition of their pleas.

McCloskeys waved and pointed firearms at Black Lives Matter protesters outside their Central West End home in June 2020.

Last year, a grand jury indicted Patricia and her husband Mark McCloskey on felony charges of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering.:snip:
