Judge Banishes Four Freemen From Court

March 17, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

A federal judge in Billings banished four cursing and shouting Freemen to holding cells as jury selection began in their trial on charges stemming from their 1996 standoff on the Montana plains. Three of the defendants had to be dragged in and out of the courtroom by federal marshals because they refused to walk, and a fourth was pushed in a wheelchair. They were ejected after disrupting the courtroom.
