SACRAMENTO, CA (Associated Press)- – A California man has admitted plotting to firebomb the state Democratic Party’s headquarters.
Prosecutors said it was the first in a planned series of politically-motivated attacks after the defeat of former President Donald Trump.
Ian Benjamin Rogers of Napa pleaded guilty Friday to conspiring to destroy a building by fire or explosives, possessing an explosive device and possessing a machine gun.
He acted under a plea agreement that could bring him seven to nine years in federal prison.
Another California man, Jarrod Copeland, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy and destruction of records.
