Man Indicted on Terror Charges in NYC Bomb Case

A New York City man charged with building a homemade bomb to try to attack police and other government targets has been indicted in a rare state-level terror case.

An indictment filed today accuses Jose Pimentel of the initial terror charges against him, plus attempted weapons possession as a terror crime. The indictment came after plea talks evidently didn’t bear fruit.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. says Pimentel “crossed the line from violent rhetoric” to bomb-making.

Pimentel’s lawyers say the case “certainly is not terrorism.” They say the lonely, curious 27-year-old was “prime pickings” for a self-serving police informant.

Pimentel’s arraignment is set for March 13.
