‘Sovereign Citizen’ Takes Plea Deal

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 43-year-old ex-convict who had been accused of plotting to kill Las Vegas police officers to advance an anti-government sovereign citizen philosophy has taken a plea deal that could get him freed from jail later this year.

David Allen Brutsche pleaded guilty Monday to felony kidnapping conspiracy.

His plea agreement represents a quiet end to a case police touted as domestic terrorism when Brutsche and Devon Campbell Newman were arrested in August.

A month later, prosecutors abandoned the two most serious charges — conspiracy to murder and attempted armed kidnapping.

Newman pleaded guilty in December to a misdemeanor. She was sentenced to probation.

Brutsche is expected to face one year in county jail at sentencing April 7.

That could get him released from jail by August.
