Darren Wesley Huff was convicted today in Knoxville, Tennessee, on a federal firearms charge stemming from a planned protest against officials in Monroe County who refused to indict President Obama. Huff had pled guilty previously to state charges previously when he tried to force his way into the grand jury room.
The jury, after a day and a half of deliberation found Huff guilty of carrying a firearm in interstate commerce with the intent to use it in a civil disorder. He was acquitted of a second charge of carrying a firearm in relation to a felony. He faces up to 5 years in prison. Huff was taken into custody following the verdict.
Sentencing is scheduled for next February.
