UPDATE: Militia Member Sentenced To 3 Years, 4 Months

Buford Rogers, Chippewa County Jail

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A militia member indicted in what the FBI once characterized as a terror plot to blow up a Minnesota police station has been sentenced to three years and four months.

Twenty-five-year-old Buford Rogers will receive credit for the year he’s already spent in jail. Fifty 50 law enforcement officers raided his parents’ mobile home in Montevideo last May.

Rogers was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to one count of possessing a firearm illegally and one count of possessing an unregistered destructive device.

U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery said the case received an “inordinate amount of attention” for what turned out to be an ordinary weapons possession offense.

Authorities say Rogers and some family members belonged to a small anti-government militia called the Black Snake Militia.
