Dangerous Militia Loon to get out on bail.
UPDATE: Coleman Barney will be released today from jail pending he post a $100,000 bail. His brother, Sam Barney, who is a school teacher in Huslia, will act as his third party custodian, Coleman’s lawyer said. His conditions for release are standard. They include not being in possession or in a building with a firearm. He still faces federal charges however, and the feds could arrest him and keep him in jail before he makes bail.
Coleman Barney, who is among the inner circle of followers of militia leader Schaeffer Cox, arrested earlier this year in an alleged murder plot to kill a state judge and members of law enforcement, wants the court to know he’s an upstanding guy. Through his attorney, Barney attempted to convince a superior court judge in Fairbanks that he was a hard-working, drug and alcohol free businessman and church elder with longstanding ties to the Fairbanks area.
