WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The attorney for a Kansas survivalist who believed the global economy was near collapse says his client created explosive devices for defense, not for a malicious attack.

Alfred Dutton, of Eureka, faces sentencing Monday in federal court in Wichita for unlawful possession of unregistered explosive devices.

The veteran of the U.S. Army and U.S. Marines was convicted in July of having grenades and other parts to make destructive devices.

Dutton was initially charged with one count for the grenades and another count for five jars of homemade napalm. He pleaded guilty to the napalm count in a deal where prosecutors withdrew the grenades count.

But an appeals court overturned the conviction while Dutton was serving a 21-month sentence.

Prosecutors then filed a new indictment charging him with possessing the grenades.
