California Investigative Researcher Joanna Mendelson provided a briefing on Sovereign Citizen ideology and criminal activities at the Riverside Federal Courthouse on February 21. The sovereign citizen movement is an extreme anti-government movement whose members believe the government has no authority over them.
Attending the briefing were Federal Bankruptcy Court judges and court staff from throughout the Central District of California. The Central District serves seven California counties.
This presentation was in partnership with the United States Marshals Office of the Central District.
