Jackubowski Appears in Court

(AP)–A Wisconsin man accused of stealing a cache of weapons and sending an anti-government manifesto to the White House refused to stand for a federal judge at his arraignment. Joseph Jakubowski appeared in court in Madison Tuesday on felony possession and theft of firearms charges. Jakubowski didn’t stand as Magistrate Judge Stephen Crocker entered the court, nor did he speak during the brief arraignment. TV reports say that his public defender, Joe Bugni, entered not guilty pleas on Jakubowski’s behalf. Prosecutors say Jakubowski mailed a rambling manifesto to President Donald Trump then stole 18 firearms from a store in Janesville on April 4. He was arrested 10 days later while camping on private property in southwestern Wisconsin, about 140 miles from Janesville. Jakubowski pleaded not guilty to state charges later Tuesday.
