Coleman Barney Appealing Conviction
A Fairbanks militia member is appealing his conviction on federal weapons charges.
Thirty-eight-year-old Coleman Barney was convicted in June of conspiracy to possess unregistered silencers and grenades.
He also was convicted of possessing an unregistered 37mm projectile launcher loaded with an anti-personnel round that contained rubber pellets.
He was sentenced last month to five years in prison.
