A Connecticut jury has ordered Alex Jones to pay nearly $1 billion to the victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting for spreading lies about the massacre.
Six adults and 20 children were killed during the shooting in December 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut. It happened just 20 minutes away from where the tearful testimonial was given against Jones.
Jones insisted to his Infowars audience that the shooting was a conspiracy and it was only being done to push gun control laws on the country.
"It would come in these waves," Robbie Parker, a plaintiff whose 6-year-old daughter was killed in the shooting, testified last month. "It was almost like I knew when Alex Jones said something, because we would get a huge wave of stuff."
During the trial Jones admitted the shooting happened, but remained combative, calling it a "kangaroo court."
"Is this a struggle session?" Jones said last month. "Are we in China? I’ve already said I’m sorry hundreds of times and I’m done saying I’m sorry."
Just before the trial began, Jones' parent company Free Speech Systems filed for bankruptcy.
