Cobb wants to 'retire from white nationalism'

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A white supremacist who unsuccessfully tried to take over the small North Dakota town of Leith says he wants to leave the state if he's released from jail and "retire from white nationalism.''

Sixty-two-year-old Craig Cobb has been jailed since mid-November, when he was arrested for terrorizing residents of Leith during an armed patrol. He's awaiting an April 29 sentencing, and hoping a judge will spare him more jail time by accepting a plea deal that calls for four years of probation.

Cobb says if he gets out of jail he'll petition another state to accept him, which would be a requirement of his probation. He didn't say which state.

Cobb says he feels he's done his part to promote white nationalism and is tired of the spotlight.
