A Coast Guard has admitted to stockpiling weapons and planning to target Supreme Court judges, prominent Democrats and TV journalists.

Christopher Hasson, who described himself as a white nationalist and domestic terrorist, was intent on carrying out mass killings.

But prosecutors didn’t file any terrorism-related charges against Hasson, who was arrested in February.

With his plea, the 50-year-old now faces up to 31 years in prison. His sentencing is set for 31 January.

After the hearing, Hasson´s public defender issued a statement saying his case had been ‘mischaracterized and sensationalized.’

Assistant federal public defender Liz Oyer said Hasson ‘was not plotting a terrorist attack or any of the abhorrent acts that the prosecution has repeatedly speculated about but never actually charged.’

She also said, ‘Mr’ Hasson never meant any harm to anyone. He deeply regrets the pain and embarrassment that he has caused his family and the US Coast Guard …’

Two of the four counts in Hasson´s indictment charged him with illegally possessing unregistered and unserialized silencers. He also was charged with possession of a firearm by an unlawful user or addict of a controlled substance, and illegal possession of tramadol, an opioid painkiller.

Assistant US Attorney Thomas Windom said prosecutors intend to argue that Hasson should be sentenced to the statutory maximum of 31 years in prison.

Oyer said she estimates that sentencing guidelines will call for a prison term ranging from 41 to 51 months.

US District Judge George Hazel is not bound by the guidelines when he sentences Hasson.
