Dutschke made a brief appearance Monday in federal court, wearing an orange jumpsuit with his hands shackled. He said little during the hearing other than answering affirmatively to the judge's questions about whether he understood the charges against him. U.S. Magistrate S. Allan Alexander set his preliminary and detention hearing for Thursday.
He faces up to life in prison if convicted.
