Trial set for GA woman facing explosives charges
By The Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - The trial for a Cornelia woman facing federal explosives and gun charges after federal agents raided her home in May is set to start next month.
Celia Savage is scheduled to appear before a federal judge in Gainesville Dec. 17 for the start of a jury trial.
When they raided her home, federal agents found two pipe bombs and a number of guns, as well as illegal drug paraphernalia and suspected marijuana, suspected methamphetamine and numerous pills. She told agents she had used marijuana the day before and had used methamphetamine two months before.
Her lawyer has said he believes prosecutors misinterpreted her anti-government Facebook postings and were too aggressive in going after her.
She has been out of jail on bond since July.
