3 convicted in NY terror plot face sentencing

Prosecutors described the men as "ticking time bombs" who needed to be taken off the streets for good

Associated Press

NEW YORK — Three men convicted of plotting to blow up New York City synagogues and shoot down military planes are scheduled to be sentenced.

James Cromitie, David Williams and Onta Williams are due in federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday.

They were convicted last year of conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.

Their lawyers argued that they deserved a break because the plot was part of an elaborate sting and never posed a threat.

But prosecutors described the men as "ticking time bombs" who needed to be taken off the streets for good.

Agents arrested them in 2009 after they planted fake devices supplied by the FBI in the Bronx while under heavy surveillance.
