Stoever refuses to plead guilty of trespass vs. nukes

"I must decline your offer to enter a plea of guilty," retired lawyer Henry Stoever says in a Sept. 11 letter to a prosecutor at Jackson County Court. Stoever, who stepped across the property line of the local nuclear weapon facility, hopes to explain to a jury next year why he was not guilty of the crime of trespass.
