DETROIT – A federal judge Tuesday acquitted seven Hutaree members of all conspiracy charges, concluding the government didn't have enough evidence that the group plotted a violent revolt that included killing a police officer and bombing a funeral.
U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts dismissed all charges against five of the defendants. Illegal weapons charges remain against two defendants: the supposed ringleader, David Stone Sr., and his son Joshua Stone.
[...]"There was no case. There was no conspiracy," Rataj said, further claiming the case was the result of overzealous federal agents.
