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.
