Accused Bombing Suspect Wants Charges Dropped

Joe Denoyer - January 14, 2018 10:38 pm

Curtis Allen, one of three men accused of plotting to bomb an apartment complex housing Somali refugees in Garden City in 2016, seeks the dismissal of a federal charge he’s facing.

Specifically, a court document motions for the charge of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction to be dismissed.

Allen, Gavin Wright and Patrick Stein face the weapon-of-mass-destruction charge. The trio is also charged with conspiracy against civil rights. They’re accused of planning to detonate truck bombs in Garden City.

In the motion to dismiss the weapon-of-mass-destruction charge, a federal public defender representing Allen wrote, “The defense asks the Court to dismiss (the charge) as constitutionally defective.”

The request to drop the charge accompanied several motions.
