Suspect in Kansas Bombing Plot Calls Hearing ‘Ridiculous’

Joe Denoyer - October 31, 2016 3:34 pm

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A man accused of plotting to bomb a western Kansas apartment complex where 120 Somali immigrants live says federal prosecutors didn’t share their evidence with his defense attorney until 10 minutes before a detention hearing.

Patrick Stein called The Associated Press from jail on Monday. Stein said he could not now respond to the government’s accusations until he talks with his attorney because jailhouse calls are monitored and recorded.

The government presented text messages and other evidence during an Oct. 21 detention hearing.

Prosecutors say that information was provided to the defense as soon as it was available.

Stein and two others have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction in a plot to bomb a Garden City apartment complex.
