Ga. man sentenced to 15 years in Army militia plot
HINESVILLE, Ga. - A 22-year-old ex-soldier has pleaded guilty to more than 30 charges for his involvement with a group of Army soldiers who authorities say planned acts of domestic terrorism.
Prosecutor Isabel Pauley says Timothy Joiner pleaded guilty Tuesday to burglary, theft, violations of the street gang terrorism and prevention act and financial transaction card thefts among other offenses.
Officials say Joiner stole various items to provide bond for a jailed leader of FEAR.
It is a self-described anarchist group led by soldiers who authorities say plotted to bomb a Savannah park fountain, poison apple orchards in Washington state and assassinate the president.
Joiner served in Iraq.
Pauley says Joiner pleaded guilty as a first offender and is sentenced to five years in prison and 10 years of probation.
