Does this mean that they will get everything that was taken back from the government?

Unfortunately not. But if on appeal they get the remaining charges dismissed, I'm hoping they'll have grounds for a kickbutt lawsuit that will enable the whole family to comfortably retire. This whole thing was dirty tricks by the ATF, and they had to break numerous laws in the process of entrapment. There's something seriously wrong with this.

The youngest member of the family was cleared of all wrong doing. He spent a year in jail for doing nothing wrong. All the money in the world will not fix the treatment this young man was made to suffer while he was in jail. I agree ''there is something seriously wrong with this.''
