GAINESVILLE - The trial for a north Georgia woman facing federal explosives and gun charges after federal agents raided her home in May has been rescheduled.

A federal judge in Gainesville on Wednesday granted a request by Celia Savage's lawyer to delay the start of her trial, which was scheduled for Dec. 17. It is now set to begin Feb. 18.

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 in Savage's Cornelia area home.

Her lawyer says he believes prosecutors misinterpreted her anti-government Facebook postings and were too aggressive in pursuing her.

She has been out of jail on bond since July.
