‘Sovereign Citizen’ Renounces Views

LAS VEGAS (AP) — An ex-convict who pleaded guilty to conspiring to kidnap random Las Vegas police officers told a Nevada judge that he no longer adheres to the anti-government philosophy that prosecutors say spurred the plot.

David Allen Brutsche used his chance to speak before sentencing Wednesday in a separate failure to register as a sex offender case to apologize and, in his words, renounce his sovereign citizen beliefs.

Senior Clark County District Court Judge J. Charles Thompson sentenced the 43-year-old Brutsche to 188 more days in jail.

Brutsche could be released by August.

The sentence was expected, as part of a deal that had Brutsche plead guilty Feb. 3 to felony conspiracy to kidnap police officers.

He’s expected to receive five years’ probation in that case at sentencing April 7.
