Judge Declares Mistrial for 6 of the Liberty City 7; 7th Defendant found Not Guilty

(Full Story)

Twice the jury had sent notes saying they were unable to decide the fate of the seven men who were accused of plotting to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago and bomb FBI buildings in Miami and elsewhere, Local 10's Rad Berky reported.

The seven men charged were all allegedly caught on FBI surveillance video pledging support to al-Qaida, but the man leading the pledge was an FBI informant. The defense claims the men were just hoping to get money from the informant and had no intention of going ahead with the alleged plot.
