Sentenced to 45 years in prison and fined $2.25 million for renouncing their US Citizenship and requiring tenants to pay rent in silver coins.
The elite banking families (the .0001%) are terrified of the general sheople population waking up to the confiscation of their wealth via fiat debt notes issued by private central banks, the unconstitutional IRS and income tax, and the devaluation of their fiat currency. Any attempts to escape the debt servitude system are met with the same vicious retribution an Alabama cotton farm slave could have expected to receive if caught after escaping his slave owner.
An Alabama couple who considered themselves sovereign citizens — who required their tenants to pay rent in silver coins and buried $350,000 worth of gold coins in their backyard — were convicted of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and three counts of tax evasion on Friday.
Monty Ervin and Patricia Ervin, owners and managers of Southern Realty, amassed “hundreds of investment properties over the last decade, receiving more than $9 million in rental income,” but paid nothing in federal income taxes, according to the Justice Department.
Patricia Ervin is facing a maximum of 25 years in prison and a fine of $1.25 million and Monty Ervin is is facing 20 years and a $1 million fine. Both are set to be sentenced on Jan. 23.
The couple sent a letter to the IRS declaring themselves "sovereign citizens" and went so far as to renounce their US citizenship and use license plates with a sovereign citizens organization.
Their letter to the IRS is embedded below:
