Georgia "Militia" informant faces child molestation and child pornography charges

Via Tom
Prosecutors denied offering the informant leniency if he brought them damaging evidence against the targets of a year-long probe.

Right and Obama isn't a Marxist either........
A federal magistrate judge refused to grant bail on Wednesday to four retired Georgia men jailed on charges linked to an alleged plot to bomb government buildings and spread a lethal biological toxin along major U.S. highways.

Ruling from the bench, U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan Cole said "there was too much evidence that the defendants posed a danger to their communities" to free them while they await trial.

Samuel J. Crump, 68, and Ray H. Adams, 65, are charged with conspiring and attempting to produce the biological toxin ricin, which can be fatal if ingested or inhaled. They could receive life sentences if convicted.

Frederick Thomas, 73, and Emory Dan Roberts, 67, are charged with conspiring to possess an unregistered explosive device and possession of an unregistered silencer, and face a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.

All four men, who are accused of being part of a fringe domestic militia group, have pleaded not guilty to the charges. Defense attorneys said they would appeal Cole's ruling.
