Adam Kokesh changes not guilty plea to guilty

Libertarian and second amendment rights activist, Kokesh pleads guilty | Washington Times Communities - Susan L. Ruth:

November 6, 2013 - "During an unscheduled hearing today, Libertarian and second amendment activist Adam Kokesh made a surprise plea of guilty on charges which stemmed from an incident on the fourth of July.

"On July 4, 2013, Kokesh videotaped himself loading a shotgun in Freedom Plaza inside Washington D.C., where carrying weapons on the street is illegal. He was arrested at his home in Herndon, Virginia on July 9 where additional weapons and a small amount of marijuana were also found.

"Online court records show that Kokesh accepted a plea today, just two weeks after he had pleaded not guilty to the same crimes, claiming that he was not guilty because he was exercising his constitutional rights.

"Kokesh had been in a D.C. jail since his July arrest but was released today after the plea and will be sentenced on January 17, 2014....

"Kokesh pled guilty to carrying a shotgun, possession of an unregistered firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, and a separate charge of possession of marijuana.... At his sentencing in January, Kokesh could face more than six years in prison."
