At conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ trial on Wednesday, a lawyer representing parents of the Sandy Hook shooting victims confronted Jones with copies of the entire contents of his phone. Texts indicated he withheld evidence during the trial, where he was found liable for defaming the victims’ families in November 2021. The phone data, which Jones’ own attorney accidentally sent to the victims’ lawyer, also deals with Jones’ involvement in the January 6 insurrection.
