CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A member of a splinter group which doesn’t recognize federal, state and local laws has been convicted of charges stemming from a three-month squatters’ siege in an upscale Charlotte subdivision.

The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/1po2BEX) District Judge Donnie Hoover found Ninti el Bey guilty of trespassing and other crimes after a trial in which she mustered her own defense.

According to neighbors and community leaders, Bey, her children and a group of other adults appeared out of nowhere at the four-bedroom, five-bath house valued at more than $800,000. Despite being evicted, she always got back inside the home, despite being arrested twice.

Bey, who was convicted on Tuesday, is a self-described Moorish National. Her splinter group also takes a broad view of its rights to other people’s property.
