Militia suspect denies he was involved in any plot

DETROIT – A Michigan man authorities accuse of being a “heavy gunner” for a Midwest Christian militia denies involvement in any plot to overthrow the government, his attorney says, and she plans to present evidence to prove he’s different from his fellow defendants.

Michael David Meeks, 40, of Manchester, faces a federal detention hearing Thursday in Detroit, where defense attorney Lisa Kirsch Satawa said evidence would be presented to distinguish Meeks from eight other suspected members of Hutaree charged with seditious conspiracy, or plotting to levy war against the U.S.

If he is so innocent then why did he and/or his group create a website that pretty much shows him to be guilty?
