Juror Removed in Bronx Bombing Terror Trial

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

A juror has been removed, on the fourth day of deliberations in the trial of four men accused of attempting to bomb synagogues in the Bronx. The judge denied calls for a mistrial, and the jury will continue with the remaining 11 members.

The judge dismissed the juror after learning last week that the juror had accidentally seen a document that wasn't in evidence.

James Cromitie and his three co-defendants are accused of hatching at plot with a paid FBI informant to bomb synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes at an upstate air base.

The defense claims the government entrapped their clients.
