You best listen to your public defender and stay away from these types of jurisdictional arguments when you were arraigned. Sovereignty and corporate entity defenses are bunk. Focus on winning at trial or mitigating your sentence at the sentencing hearing.
That "cobsent/corporation" defense is pure HOGWASH. It is stupid sov citizen garbage. Do not get suckered in and please dint ask me about my nationality. You need an atty who practices in fed court and no, the tassels on the American flag do not make it a maritime court.

Jurisdiction for interstate commerce only requires a de minimis effect on commerce itself. The actual article or item in question (e.g. a stolen vehicle) need not actually travel or move in interstate commerce. The removal of an article from entering commerce affects the interstate market and is sufficient to establish jurisdiction.
