Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s family and friends plan a demonstration at the federal courthouse in Las Vegas to coincide with his scheduled Thursday court date.
Wife Carol Bundy said Tuesday the picketing should show that backers are keeping up their fight against the federal government.
Carol Bundy tells The Associated Press her husband may hire a lawyer before his court appearance, but she’s not saying yet who that’ll be.
Cliven Bundy is accused of 16 charges stemming from an armed standoff with federal agents in April 2014 that stopped a roundup of cows from public land near his ranch in Bunkerville.
He was arrested Feb. 10 in Oregon as he arrived at Portland International Airport to visit two of his sons jailed during the occupation of a federal wildlife refuge.
