Feds Defend Charges in Michigan Militia Case

ABC News on March 26, 2012 released the following:

“By ED WHITE Associated Press

Federal prosecutors are defending the criminal case brought against seven members of a Michigan militia as a judge considers whether any charges should be dismissed.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sheldon Light conceded Monday there’s no proof of a “specific plan” to attack the U.S. government. But he says there’s much evidence in secretly recorded discussions to show the Hutaree militia wanted to draw in federal law enforcement by killing local authorities.

Militia members are charged with conspiring to commit rebellion against the government and other crimes. There was no actual attack. Jurors have the day off while defense attorneys argue for acquittal. Prosecutors rested their case last week.

Judge Victoria Roberts is pressing them to explain why the charge of seditious conspiracy fits against all seven.”
