Verdict in 'Newburgh Four' case will not be dismissed
A federal appeals court has denied an appeal to have the guilty verdict set aside for the four men, known as the "Newburgh Four," who plotted to blow up synagogues and shoot down military aircraft at Stewart Air Base.
The 28-page decision denies the appeal, but recognizes "some truth to the defense?s argument."
Defense attorneys for the four men had claimed that the FBI entrapped the men and manufactured the crime. The FBI admits to providing the men, through an informant, with fake missile launchers and bombs.
The four man face life behind bars for the crimes, but their attorneys say they plan to continue their appeals. Federal judge delays sentencing of 'Newburgh Four'Attorney for Newburgh 4 claims entrapment
