Appeals court halts Hutaree release

Detroit -- A federal appeals court temporarily halted the release of nine Hutaree militia defendants today, just moments before they were scheduled to be set free.
"The order of revocation is temporarily stayed pending further review and order of the court," the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals said in response to an emergency motion from federal prosecutors in Detroit.
The effect of the order is that none of the defendants will be released before Friday.

Looks like the legal ping pong continues in regards to the 9 Hutaree members arrested in a raid last month, that prompted the MSM to lump a whole lot of folks into a very small basket.

There was plenty of TV media coverage of the arrests, not so much the current situation unfolding in court.

I guess they don't want the public to know what a hard time the Feds are having just trying to keep the nine locked up during the case..

Update: the defense filed their arguments to the appellate court yesterday in response to the emergency stay.

DETROIT - Defense attorneys yesterday filed arguments asking the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals to lift the emergency order that is keeping nine members of the Lenawee County-based Hutaree militia group in jail.
In paperwork filed with the appellate court, the lawyers argued that U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts thoroughly and accurately reviewed evidence against the Christian militia group.
Judge Roberts had cleared the way Wednesday for the nine to be released from jail and also had denied an appeal from the U.S. Attorneys office for a stay later that night.
But the government appealed early yesterday to the Cincinnati-based appellate court for an emergency stay to keep the nine defendants in jail. The court granted the stay shortly before noon and gave the lawyers until 5 p.m. to respond.

The rollercoaster ride continues..

And so the insanity begins . About the only good thing I can say is that the nine Hutaree militia members won't face what some of their colleges will face in the future . Torture , preventive detention and loss of citizenship are the least of what is coming for up and coming domestic terrorist suspects .

I wonder how illegal aliens who take to acts of terrorism will be treated ?

3 have been release, with a fourth pending:

Detroit -- A federal judge ordered three of the nine Hutaree militia defendants released from custody today.
Shortly after 2:30 p.m., Judge Victoria A. Roberts of U.S. District Court ordered Tina Stone, 44, of Clayton, released to her parents, Timothy and Henrietta Kelley.
"The court is putting a lot of faith and trust in you," Roberts told the Kelleys, who, as third-party custodians, are expected to report any violations by their daughter of her terms of release.

A fourth defendant, Kristopher Sickles, 27, of Sandusky, Ohio, is expected to be released today, according to officials.
Earlier, the judge ordered David Stone Jr., 19, of Adrian, and Jacob Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio, released to their mothers, under home confinement wearing electronic tethers.

Article on the 4th suspect being released:

A 4th Hutaree member released

As expected, a fourth member of the Hutaree militia group was released from custody Wednesday until trial on seditious conspiracy charges.

Kristopher Sickles, 27, of Sandusky, Ohio, appeared in U.S. District Court in Detroit before being released to his wife, Kelly, who will serve as his custodian. He faces similar restrictions as three other members freed Tuesday, including an electronic monitoring tether.

No word on the fate of the remaining five being held in custody.

Anyone spot a mention of the releases on MSM? I haven't.
