Bombs de­fen­dant faces 30-count in­dict­ment

The Western Star - - WORLD -

NEW YORK — The man ac­cused of send­ing pipe bombs to prom­i­nent crit­ics of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has been in­dicted on charges car­ry­ing a po­ten­tial penalty of life in prison.

The 30-count in­dict­ment in Man­hat­tan fed­eral court was filed on Fri­day against Ce­sar Sayoc.

Sayoc was ar­rested in Florida on five charges car­ry­ing a po­ten­tial sen­tence upon con­vic­tion of nearly 50 years. None of the de­vices — some of which ar­rived at New York ad­dresses — ex­ploded.

A mes­sage left with Sayoc’s lawyer was not im­me­di­ately re­turned.
