PLAINFIELD, NEW HAMPSHIRE- A woman who went to prison for holding U.S. Marshals at bay  months after she was convicted of tax evasion apologized to her hometown.

Elaine Brown and her husband were convicted in 2009 for plotting to kill federal agents during a standoff at their house. They amassed an arsenal of weapons at their fortress-like home.

Both insisted the federal income tax is unconstitutional. Brown wrote a letter to the editor of the Plainfield newspaper saying she and her husband "failed to realize the fear, anxiety and impact we were causing" to townspeople.

She wrote, "I realize the wrong I have done to you all." But she also wrote she and her husband were trying to advance the "cause of justice."
