LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 67-year-old woman accused of plotting to kill Las Vegas police to advance an anti-authority sovereign citizens movement is due in court for a bail hearing.
The Monday appearance by Devon Campbell Newman comes after she told a Las Vegas judge on Friday that she didn't hurt anyone and wants to be freed pending a Sept. 9 preliminary hearing.
Newman and co-defendant David Allen Brutsche (brew-SHAY') told Justice of the Peace Conrad Hafen they don't recognize his authority to keep them in jail.
The judge set bail for the 42-year-old Brutsche at $600,000.
Police say an undercover officer spent four months with Brutsche and Newman, collecting evidence of what authorities are calling a domestic terror operation.
Federal authorities regard sovereign citizen extremists as domestic terrorists.
