Sovereign Citizens couple charged with attempted extortion

OXFORD, Ala. (WIAT) — The common law wife of a man the FBI calls a domestic terrorist is behind bars after being arrested Wednesday in Scottsboro. Mariam Clare Shultz, 67, and Everett Leon Stout are both charged with attempting to extort millions of dollars from Oxford businesses. Agents arrested Stout on Sunday.

Oxford police say the pair are a part of a domestic terrorism group called Sovereign Citizens. The arrests follow a bust where an undercover operative says they caught Stout trying to extort money from Dandy RV Superstore in Oxford.
