Mail bomb suspect indicted on 30 counts
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.
