Judge Trevor McFadden also cited evidence Seefried had used the Confederate flag to jab at Goodman. Seefried faces sentencing Sept. 16. Minutes after the verdict was read, Seefried was in tears hugging supporters in the courtroom.
Seefried’s son, Hunter, was partially acquitted. The judge found Hunter Seefried not guilty of a charge for breaking a window at the Capitol, saying the evidence was not clear. McFadden convicted Hunter of the more serious charge of obstruction.
