Mi. Undercover FBI Agent Used Bogus Name on Militia Leader’s Marriage Certificate

An interesting thing happened on the way to the alter: An undercover FBI agent who infiltrated the Hutaree militia in Michigan ended up signing the marriage certificate for the group’s leader using a bogus name, the website AnnArbor.com reported.

The site reported, citing an FBI 302 report, that the undercover agent was the best man at the small wedding of group leader David Brian Stone and his wife Tina Stone in 2009.

The FBI report said the agent signed the certificate so “not to cause a questionable scene” at the wedding at the bride’s home in Jefferson Township, Mi., AnnArbor.com reported.

Stone and eight other members of the militia face federal charges in Detroit of conspiring to kill cops and trigger a revolt against the government.

Attorney Jackie Garris of Ann Arbor, who specializes in family law, told AnnArbor.com that the marriage would still be valid despite the bogus signature.

Wayne State University Law School professor and former federal prosecutor Peter Henning told the website that the agent’s signature shouldn’t cause problems for the government.

“Normally, undercovers are not instructed to commit any illegal acts,” Henning said. “I would certainly believe this would fall into the area of permissible conduct an undercover could engage in.”
