Pipe-bomb suspect risks life in prison
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 yesterday against Cesar Sayoc.
Sayoc was arrested in Florida on five charges carrying a potential sentence on conviction of nearly 50 years.
None of the devices — some of which arrived at New York addresses — exploded. Sayoc appeared in New York earlier this week. He was held without bail.
