HINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man has pleaded guilty to burglary and other charges as part of a deal requiring him to cooperate with authorities as they prosecute members of what they describe as a Georgia militia group.
Randall Blake Dearman is not charged in murders at the center of the militia case. Rather, he pleaded guilty Tuesday to several counts stemming mostly from burglaries and car break-ins.
Prosecutors say Dearman must now cooperate with civilian and military authorities in the prosecution of members of F.E.A.R., or Forever Enduring Always Ready.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against members of F.E.A.R. who face murder charges. Prosecutors say the group was led by active-duty soldiers at Ft. Stewart who also plotted bomb attacks in Savannah and aimed to poison apple crops in Washington state.
