Mail bomb sus­pect in­dicted on 30 counts

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation -

A Florida man ac­cused of mail­ing 16 pipe bombs to crit­ics of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump was in­dicted in New York City on Fri­day on charges that carry a po­ten­tial sen­tence of life in prison.

A fed­eral grand jury re­turned the 30­count in­dict­ment against the man, Ce­sar Sayoc Jr., 56, who was ar­rested Oct. 26 in Plan­ta­tion, Fla.

Au­thor­i­ties have said that Sayoc sent home­made bombs fash­ioned from PVC pipe and glass shards to prom­i­nent Democrats — among them Hil­lary Clin­ton and for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama — as well as to CNN and pri­vate crit­ics of the pres­i­dent like ac­tor Robert Deniro.

Au­thor­i­ties have called it a “do­mes­tic ter­ror­ist at­tack.”

Sayoc’s fed­eral de­fender, Sarah Baum­gar­tel, de­clined to com­ment Fri­day.
