UPDATE: Purported Louisiana ‘Sovereign’ Implicated In Utah False-Liens Case Sentenced To 30 Months In Federal Prison

americaatrisk4Robert Clifton Tanner, the purported Louisiana “sovereign citizen” implicated in a cross-border plot to file bogus financial judgments against state-court judges and others in Utah, has pleaded guilty to federal charges of mail fraud and has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.

One of the documents was styled “Petition for Agreement and Harmony in the Nature of a Notice of International Commercial Claim Administrative Remedy,” federal prosecutors in Utah said.

Tanner is 45. His co-defendant, Maria Melody Fuentes Cecil Mobo, 42, of Spanish Fork, Utah, is scheduled to go on trial Feb. 25. She is charged with four counts of mail fraud.

Bogus filings by the pair asserted they were owed billions of dollars by judges and others, prosecutors said.

As part of a plea agreement with the 30-month sentence for Tanner, “other state and federal jurisdictions in Louisiana and Utah had agreed to forgo additional charges against” him.

The sentence was imposed by U.S. District Judge David Sam.
