Kokesh update: Could be charged with armed sedition says sheriff's deputy, being kept in cold, ant infested solitary confinementSubmitted by Shawker on Thu, 07/11/2013 - 21:20
Adam was able to make a call to his father. His father thinks that Adam may not be allowed to make another call anytime soon.
Adam wants a lawyer. He has requested access to a lawyer constantly since being caged. He refuses to go to court without a lawyer. Adam’s manager, Lucas Jewell, is working on getting him trusted counsel ASAP.
Adam is being held in solitary confinement in a 6.5′ x 7.5′ cage without bedding. He was kidnapped while wearing shorts and has not been given proper clothing to protect him from the frigid temperatures that have become standard operating procedure in America’s prisons.
Adam reports via his father that the cage he has been locked into is infested with ants. Furthermore, the lights are kept on by the guards 24 hours per day without any break for rest.
A public defender is expected to be appointed at 3PM Eastern today.
During the attack on his home Tuesday evening, the flashbang (stun grenade) deployed by militarized US Park Police exploded right in front of Adam. He reports that he has yet to receive any medical care inside the prison
A sheriff’s deputy informed Adam that charges of illegal transportation of a firearm, sedition and armed sedition are being considered against him, presumably by federal prosecutors. (Oxford defines sedition as “conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.”
Check out the pictures of the warrants in that link. There are two. One authorizes Adam's arrest because he had mushrooms and the other because he had mushrooms while being in possession of a firearm. It says nothing about being in possession of a fire arm in DC. These are the crimes he was charged with. So they knew they were going to charge him with these crimes before they entered and searched the house.
