Christopher Ledbetter's, who’s home was raided by federal agents in McLoud, will be in court for a preliminary hearing Wednesday morning at the federal courthouse in Downtown Oklahoma City.

His family and supporters will be at the Federal Courthouse to protest his arrest by federal agents five days ago.

The investigation has been going on for months.

Federal complaints are saying Ledbetter owned a fully automatic AK-47 that he didn't have a license for. Investigators in the case say they used Ledbetter's own Youtube channel as evidence.

During the raid on his Mcloud property last week, federal agents were also searching for explosives.

The suspects family says they're being accused of running a compound, which they say isn't true, and they believe the McLoud Police Department is harassing them.

The family says they even filed a restraining order against a McLoud officer earlier this year. That was eventually dismissed.

If convicted, Ledbetter could face up to 10 years in jail and a 250 thousand dollar fine.

His Protesters and supporters say they will be out at the courthouse as early as eight Tuesday morning.
