Sounds like they were railroaded into taking a plea deal. - ChrisANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - An Alaska couple pleaded guilty on Monday to charges of conspiring to kill a federal judge in what prosecutors said was a revenge plot over income-tax rulings against them.
[...]Despite entering his guilty plea, Lonnie Vernon disrupted Monday's court proceedings with a number of defiant outbursts.
"If I'm accused of doing anything, I'm accused of freely exercising my First Amendment rights to the max," he told Judge Robert Bryan, who was brought in from Tacoma, Washington, to preside over the case.
But Bryan told the defendant that he and others with similar political views are mistaken about their responsibilities to obey the law. "You can't decide, on your own, that you won't be part of what the government rules are," Bryan said.
