As we have seen over the last two weeks or so, terrorism can come in the form of people from all race, religions, and creeds. It’s hard to disagree with the sentiment that these can be scary times to live in, but we must go on with our everyday lives and try not to fear the what we have come to learn is inevitably going to happen–and just hope it doesn’t happen to us. A man from Baldwin Borough was arrested after police searched his home and found approximately twenty homemade bombs and white supremacist literature. He will now spend seven and half years in a federal prison, according to a judge last Thursday morning. The 38-year-old man pleaded guilty in August to possession of an unregistered destructive device. A United States district judge also sentenced the man to three years of probation after his jail sentence is complete. Baldwin Borough police arrested the man in July 2014 on domestic violence charges after he assaulted of his girlfriend and their five-year-old child. After his girlfriend obtained a protection from abuse order, police returned to their house to remove his belongings, according to prosecutors. During an investigation at that time, police found bombs, remote detonators, bomb-making materials, and bomb-making instructions. In addition, they found a podium and business cards listing the residence as the meeting place for the “White Church Supremacists.” If you have been arrested for a federal crime, you will need your rights protected by an experienced federal defense attorney.
