Montevideo Terror Suspect Court Delay 09 May 13

The defense attorney for the Montevideo man arrested in what the FBI has called a “thwarted terror plot” says that authorities have given the public misinformation about his client. A detention hearing was postponed Wednesday for 24-year-old Buford Rogers to allow his attorney additional time to investigate the accusations against his client. Rogers is charged with one count of illegally possessing a firearm. He was arrested Friday after authorities found explosives and weapons in his parent’s mobile home in Montevideo. The FBI says the attack was still being planned. They have not released any details of their investigation at this time. Rogers has a prior felony burglary conviction, and is not allowed to have a gun.
