4 Ga. militia suspects plead not guilty in court
4 Georgia militia suspects accused of plotting attacks with ricin, explosives plead not guilty
By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) ' Four suspected members of a Georgia militia charged with plotting attacks with toxins and explosives against government officials have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

The four men appeared at a bond hearing at a Gainesville federal courthouse Wednesday. Prosecutors allege the men talked of assassinating U.S. Attorney General and former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, among others.

Prosecutors have accused 73-year-old Frederick Thomas and 67-year-old Dan Roberts of conspiring to obtain an explosive and possessing an unregistered silencer. Authorities also charged 55-year-old Ray Adams and 68-year-old Samuel Crump with conspiring and attempting to make ricin, a biological toxin that can be lethal in small doses.



If convicted, the men could face more than a decade in prison. Attorneys and relatives of the men say the charges are baseless.
