McDonald County white supremacist Robert Joos announced today he is ready for trial. A trial date will be set next month, according to online court records.
Joos' pronouncement was made during a seven-minute hearing this morning in U. S. District Court in Springfield. Joos is being held without bond.
Joos is charged with being a felon illegally possessing firearms, two counts of unlawful transport of firearms and one count transporting explosive materials interstate.
Joos was arrested in connection with a federal investigation of a racially-motivated 2004 bombing in Scottsdale, Ariz. National white supremacist leader Dennis Mahon and his brother Daniel were charged with that crime.
