            CONCORD, N.H. -- A federal judge sentenced a pair of =
convicted tax evaders in absentia Tuesday, but officials said they have =
no plans to lay siege to their hilltop compound to send them to prison.=20

                  Link: Ed & Elaine Brown's MySpace Page=20
                =20


            Ed and Elaine Brown skipped the court appearances in favor =
of remaining holed up in their fortress-like Plainfield home. The Browns =
say federal tax laws don't exist, and he vowed to use force to avoid =
capture.=20

            At their home on Tuesday night, it was a much different =
scene than in the past.=20

            Supporters typically seen outside or along the driveway were =
not there.=20

            A vehicle that normally blocks the entrance to the house was =
gone. A tractor near a main entrance to the home had also been moved and =
there were no American flags draped upside down.=20

            Ed Brown said he would not do any on camera interviews. "I =
have nothing to say. It's over. What's the point?," Brown told News 9.=20

            U.S. marshals, charged with seizing the former exterminator =
and his dentist wife, said they're not planning to attack the rural =
site.=20

            "We're not going to engage in that kind of game with them," =
U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier said in an interview. "Law enforcement is =
not going away and neither are the warrants."=20

            The Browns were convicted in January of plotting to conceal =
their income and avoid paying federal income tax. Elaine Brown also was =
accused of not paying taxes for employees at her dental clinic. U.S. =
District Judge Steven McAuliffe on Tuesday sentenced them each to more =
than five years in prison.=20

            But in telephone interviews Monday and Tuesday, Ed Brown =
said they will stay in their home despite convictions and warrants.=20

            "I could care less what he does," Brown said of McAuliffe. =
"I can't talk to a fiction. You're a fiction, too."=20

            Reached after the sentences were handed down, Brown said the =
only law he's following is God's.=20

            "The world belongs to the creator. It doesn't belong to man. =
It doesn't belong to the United States government. It doesn't belong to =
me. It doesn't belong to you," Brown said.=20

            The couple stopped attending halfway through their trial =
this winter. She returned toward the end; he remained on their 110-acre =
hilltop retreat, which features a watchtower with a 360-degree view of =
the countryside, solar and wind power and ample food and other supplies. =


            "They've acted as if they're above the law," Assistant U.S. =
Attorney Bill Morse said.=20

            A jury decided in January that the Browns had engaged in a =
scheme to hide Elaine Brown's income of $1.9 million between 1996 and =
2003. Jurors also found that over 10 years, the couple used $215,890 in =
postal money orders -- in increments just below the reporting threshold =
-- to pay for their compound and for Elaine Brown's dental practice.=20

            After the verdict, Elaine Brown was released to her son in =
Worcester, Mass., and promised the judge she would have no contact with =
her husband. But she violated her bond agreement and returned to =
Plainfield.=20

            On Monday, Ed Brown said his wife, who earned most of the =
couple's income, wouldn't be at her sentencing.=20

            "I speak for her. You speak to the head. You don't speak to =
the woman. That's the way it was until the last decade or so," he said.=20

            Outside the courthouse on Tuesday, about a dozen supporters =
protested the proceedings. Waving "Don't Tread on Me" flags and holding =
signs, the Browns' supporters said the entire process was a sham.=20

            "Show me the law," said Bernie Bastion of Weare. "They =
can't, because there is no law."=20

            The Browns and their supporters said the federal income tax =
is oppressive and tyrannical.=20

            "We might as well be in Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany," said =
Dennis Mounce of Manchester. He stood with signs that read, "Fed =
Bullies: Leave the Browns Alone."=20

            The U.S. marshals might just do that. Although both Browns =
are wanted on active warrants, marshals said again Tuesday they have no =
plans to storm the compound.=20

            "They've said all along they're not leaving. You know what? =
I believe them," Monier said.=20

            No marshals are on the site, and Monier said they aren't =
going to start blockading roads or cutting off supplies.=20

            "Once we're there, we'd be there forever," he said. =20
