Judges Brad Jacobs and Andrew Adams of the Clark County Circuit Court can be seen in the fast food restaurant’s parking lot at approximately 3:30 a.m. on the day in issue. Two judges were participating in a judicial meeting.

According to testimony in the gunman’s trial, Adams and Jacobs had been “heavily intoxicated” throughout the evening at several bars and were having a nightcap at White Castle.

Two guys in an SUV were observed by the two judges and Crawford County Judge Sabrina Bell, who was attending the same court session.

Two counts of aggravated battery, the most serious charges, may result in up to 32 years in jail.

Kaiser’s justification for shooting Adams and Jacobs was self-defense. The verdict will be rendered on October 21.

In November of 2019, Vazquez, Kaiser’s nephew, pled guilty to assault. He completed his six-month home detention and one-year probationary period by December 2020.
