Cox Appeal Rejected by U.S. Supreme Court

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A federal appeal made by former Fairbanks Militia Leader, Schaeffer Cox, has been denied by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Cox was arrested in 2011 and charged with conspiracy to commit murder in a case involving federal law enforcement officials.
In 2012 he was convicted of those charges, and then sentenced to 26 years in prison in 2013.
The appeal stems from the question of whether the evidence was sufficient for conspiracy to murder federal officials.
In 2017 the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals over turned his conviction.
He is scheduled to be re-sentenced.
