Case for NYC terror plot suspect adjourned until Dec. 5
NEW YORK, N.Y. -- The terror plot suspect arrested in New York City over the weekend won't be in court until December.
Jose Pimentel's case was adjourned Wednesday until Dec. 5 for possible grand jury action. Pimentel was appointed a new defense counsel but was not in court.
The 27-year-old is accused of plotting to bomb government buildings in New York and U.S. troops returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Police said Pimentel lived for five years in Schenectady where he was arrested in 2005 for using a stolen credit card to buy a computer. He pleaded guilty to criminal possession of stolen property in 2006 and was sentenced to probation before he moved to New York City.
