Charges dropped against remaining Church of Wells members in Lakewood Church heckling case

Jacob Gardner, left, and Richard Trudeau were both cleared of charges following last year's Lakewood Church heckling case.

Charges against two remaining members of the Church of Wells accused of disrupting a service at Lakewood Church last year have been dismissed.

Today, we learned Jacob Garner and Richard Trudeau, who had been charged with criminal trespass, were cleared in the case, which stemmed from outbursts during a service at Lakewood Church in June of last year.

Earlier this week, four other men accused in the case -- Kevin Fessler, Matthew Martinez, Randall Valdez and Mark DeRouville - had their trespassing charges dismissed. They were also found not guilty of disrupting a meeting or procession.
