Hearing set for accused FEAR group member


A man accused of burglary, theft and participating in a militia group is scheduled to appear in a Hinesville courtroom on Tuesday.

Timothy Martin Joiner was indicted by a grand jury in Liberty County in September. He's accused of violating the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, burglaries, entering autos, theft by taking, financial transaction card theft and criminal damage to property. 

Another indictment against Joiner is for four counts of Street Gang violations, a burglary and theft by taking.

Joiner is expected to enter a negotiated guilty plea to all counts in both indictments at the hearing, according to the District Attorney's Office of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit.

Adam Brady Dearman is a co-defendant with Joiner in both indictments. 

Joiner is accused of being a member of the militia group Forever Enduring Always Ready. He was an active duty Army soldier stationed at Fort Stewart when the crimes occurred, according to the District's Attorney's Office. 

The cases relate to another case of four people charged in connection with a double murder.

Isaac Aguigui, Christopher and Heather Salmon and Anthony Peden are charged in Long County in connection with the December 2011 deaths of Michael Roark and Tiffany York.
