Federal Court White Plains
A Federal Judge is expected to decide by week's end whether four men from Newburgh charged in an elaborate terror plot, will be allowed to go free on bail. Lawyers for the men Monday petitioned for bail in Federal Court in White Plains , saying their clients are "good people" with "strong ties to the Hudson Valley. Prosecutors insist the so-called "Newburgh Four" are dangerous terrorists and pose a flight risk.
Jury selection was cut short Monday in the trial of the four men accused of a homegrown terror plot that included the bombing two synagogues in the Bronx and the planned bombing of military planes at Stewart Airport in Newburgh.
Nearly 150 jurors on hand for the start of jury selection were sent home after U.S. District Judge Colllen McMahon ordered prosecutors to provide evidence for the defense, something Federal prosecturors said could take several months. Judge McMahon ordered them to provide the evidence by July 2.
