The Hutaree terror case officially ended today with the last two defendants cutting deals with the government, two days after their five codefendants were cleared of all charges by a federal judge. While defendants David Stone Sr. and his son Joshua Stone faced a handful of weapons violations, they pleaded guilty to possession of a machine gun that is punishable up to 10 years in prison. The judge agreed to release the two on bond. The prosecution objected to releasing Stone Sr., saying he remained a threat to society, but did not object to releasing his son Joshua Stone.
