Militia Leader Appeal Draws Split Ruling

Aug 30, 2017

A federal appeals court has thrown out one of the convictions of former Fairbanks militia leader Schaeffer Cox. A 9th Circuit Court of appeals decision filed Tuesday, vacates Cox’s conviction of solicitation to murder federal officials. The 6 page ruling upholds a conspiracy to murder conviction, and remands the case back to district court for re-sentencing. KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.
