BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Two more of the Montana Freemen, who stood
together through 81 days of a 1996 standoff with the FBI, broke ranks
Wednesday and pleaded guilty.
Twelve other Freemen went on trial on charges in a 40-count federal
indictment, although nine of them boycotted the session and had to be
dragged to a holding cell to watch the proceedings on closed-circuit
A jury of seven women and five men, plus two alternates, was chosen in
a day-long session. They will begin hearing opening arguments Thursday
morning; the trial is expected to last four to five weeks.
In an appearance before jury questioning began, Dana Dudley Landers,
48, of Four Oaks, N.C., pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of
stolen goods, mostly vehicles and office equipment purchased in North
Carolina with worthless Freemen checks and brought to Montana.
U.S. Attorney Sherry Scheel Matteucci said Mrs. Landers agreed to
Testify against the other Freemen, and then face state charges in
Prosecutors alleged the vehicles were to have been used by the Freemen
In kidnapping public officials for ``trials'' before a Freemen
Later in the day, 69-year-old Emmett Clark pleaded guilty to
threatening to kidnap and murder a federal judge.

The charges against the remaining defendants include conspiracy to
Commit fraud; wire, bank and mail fraud; armed robbery of TV news
crews; and threatening to kill a federal judge.

Dana Dudley Landers ---- Dana, called me out of the blue, when I was
Living in Las Vegas, this was about six months before the Oklahoma
Bombing. She was calling from Kingman AZ. She said she had just become
A Constitutional Ranger and was trained in Phoenix by Dare Shut. She
Wanted to be added to APFN fax list. She said she was going to
Minneapolis, MN. She said she would fax me a number to send info to
When she got there. I never received a number from her. The next
Time I heard of her was that she was with Ray Lamply, of Elome City,
OK. They had sent me an alert about Patriots that were going to be
arrested in Florida. I sent this fax to APFN advisors in that area
And as it turned out the report was false. Then the Oklahoma Bombing
Indicant occurred, shortly after this Ray Lamply, his wife and another
Were arrested for making bombs. It is my own personal opinion that
Ms. Dana Dudley, knows a lot more about Oklahoma Bombing. I was very
Surprised to hear of her arrest with the Freemen. After her arrest
With the Freemen she wrote letters about how bad the U.S. Government
Was etcà. this info was published in Americans Bulletin. It is my
Understanding that she was only at the Freemen facility a week or so
Before siege. I have long suspected Dana Dudley Landers as an agent.
