Three Alaska men are scheduled to go on trial Monday in Anchorage on charges of plotting to kill government employees.
Fairbanks militia leader Schaeffer Cox of Fairbanks, Coleman Barney of North Pole and Lonnie Vernon of Salcha were arrested 14 months ago and also face weapons charges.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports ( http://bit.ly/IRuzTh) the arrests followed an FBI investigation of Cox that began in 2010.
Cox has described himself as a sovereign citizen.
The FBI classifies the sovereign citizen movement as domestic terrorism movement known for clogging the court system with fraudulent liens and lawsuits.
Cox ran for state House in the Republican primary in 2008. In 2009 he started a gun rights organization, the Second Amendment Taskforce, which staged large rallies in Fairbanks.
