Court: No guilty plea Tues. in Lenawee Co. militia case
Wed, 02 Nov 2011 20:04:36 GMT —
Federal court officials in Detroit say there will be no guilty plea next Tuesday for one of nine people charged in an investigation of a southern Michigan militia.
Court spokesman Rod Hansen says a hearing for Joshua Clough was erroneously entered on the docket Wednesday.
Clough of Lenawee County is accused of conspiring to rebel against the government among other charges. He and eight other people are scheduled to go to trial in February.
Clough has been in custody since his arrest last year. His attorney did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment. The U.S. attorney's office declined to comment.
The government claims members of Hutaree were scheming to kill a police officer, then attack law enforcement.
