Guilty plea set next week in Michigan militia probe
DETROIT (AP) - One of nine people charged in an investigation of a southern Michigan militia apparently has agreed to plead guilty next week.
Records show Joshua Clough of Lenawee County is due in federal court next Tuesday to change his plea, three months before trial. He's accused of conspiring to rebel against the government among other charges, but it's not clear what's in his deal with prosecutors. No details were filed.
It would be the first guilty plea since charges were filed against nine people in spring 2010. Trial for the others is set for February.
Messages seeking comment were left Wednesday with Clough's attorney and a prosecutor.
