Sentenced reduced for FEAR group member


A member of the militia group called FEAR got his sentence reduced Thursday in McIntosh County, according to the Coastal Courier. 

Officials say Michael Burnette will now serve eight years instead of 10 or the 2011 murders of Long County teens Tiffany York and Michael Roark.

We're told he got two years shaved off his time for cooperating with the government against fellow members of the FEAR group, made up of Fort Stewart soldiers.

But, Burnette will still have to do 40 years probation.
