Bomb suspect set for Florida court appearance

He nearly certainly had no idea that lab technicians had linked DNA on two pipe bomb packages he was accused of sending to prominent Democrats to a sample previously collected by Florida state authorities.

Sayoc could be sentenced to a maximum of almost 50 years in prison if convicted.

According to the Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Sayoc remained calm during the short hearing, but teared up when he saw one of his sisters in the gallery.

Sayoc spoke little during the brief hearing.

At the hearing, U.S. Magistrate Judge Edwin Torres read the charges against Sayoc and informed him of his rights.

Sayoc is scheduled to appear in court in Miami on Monday, NPR reported, after which he will likely be sent to NY.

News of that latest package surfaced with just over a week to go in highly charged political campaigns across the nation leading up to November 6 elections, in which Democrats are battling to seize control of a Congress now held by Trump's Republican Party.

One of Sayoc's attorneys, Daniel Aaronson, urged people not to rush to judgment based on media reports.

"And along came the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, who welcomed all extremists, all outsiders, all outliers, and he felt that somebody was finally talking to him", said attorney Ronald Lowy, who has represented Sayoc in the past and now represents his family. "Therefore there is no reason why he should speak or possibly have any information to impart".

None of the bombs exploded and no one was hurt. Another package that appears identical to the others was sent to CNN's worldwide headquarters in Atlanta, but it was intercepted Monday at an off-site screening facility.

The US documentarian captured former bouncer, strip club DJ and pizza delivery driver Sayoc, who is accused of sending 13 explosive devices to targets including Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, at the rally in Florida, while making his recent movie Fahrenheit 11/9.

As law enforcement officials dig deeper into the life and plans of mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc, they have discovered that if he had not been apprehended, it was very likely that dozens of additional individuals would have received pipe bombs in the mail as well. The list included mostly politicians and media figures. Law enforcement authorities have been reaching out to everyone on the list to alert them.

Sayoc was arrested Friday outside an auto parts store in Plantation, Florida, near Miami, and authorities also seized a white van that Sayoc appeared to live in.

Prosecutors said they would oppose any bond for Sayoc, calling him a danger to the community and a flight risk.

Court records show he had been arrested at least nine times, mostly in Florida, for accusations of grand theft, battery, fraud, drug possession, and probation violations.

"These are not hoax devices", Wray said of the bombs.

"The defendant contacted a rep (from) Florida Power and Light telephone and threatened to blow up FPL", a Miami Police Department report about the incident said. His Twitter pages also showed he threatened other Hollywood stars, including Jim Carrey and Ron Howard, online.

He took on Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee in the Florida governor's race, more than 80 times in October alone.

Cesar Sayoc stood in the throng of shouting, teeth-gnashed Trump supporters and joined a chant directed at news cameras.

Moore writes in his Instagram post: "Who we needed to understand were our fellow Americans, lost souls full of anger and possible violence, easily fed a pile of lies so large and toxic that we wondered if there would ever be a chance that we could bring them back from the Dark Side". Stick your BS all crap you talk where sun doesn't shine. A package to Soros had been recovered two days earlier.
