Detroit — A federal judge has found that all nine members of the Hutaree accused of plotting a violent battle with government forces should be released from custody pending their trials.
U.S. District Judge Victoria A. Roberts ruled this morning that they will be subject to home detention and electronic monitoring with curfews.
Federal prosecutors might appeal the ruling and ask Roberts to stay her order pending the appeal.
“We don’t know right now,” said Susan Plochinksi, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “We’re reviewing the order and assessing all of our options.”
Roberts said there were bond conditions that could help assure public safety and attendance of the defendants at future court proceedings.
