DETROIT (AP) – A member of a Michigan militia will likely avoid more jail time when he’s sentenced next month.

Hutaree militia member Joshua Clough pleaded guilty to possessing machine guns in April. He had spent two years in jail prior to that, and federal prosecutors are saying that’s enough … but they do want him put on supervised release or probation for two years.

Clough’s lawyer will argue supervision isn’t necessary.

Nine militia members were charged with conspiring to rebel against the government, but a judge dismissed most charges in March.
