Defense Rests In Liberty City 7 Terrorism Trial

MIAMI (CBS4) ― The defense has rested its case in the trial of seven men charged with plotting to destroy Chicago’s Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in Miami and other cities.

The jury will return Tuesday to hear a brief rebuttal case from federal prosecutors. Closing arguments could begin the following day.

Narseal Batiste is the alleged leader of the so-called “Liberty City Seven.” He has testified that he invented a fake plot to destroy the Sears Tower in order to con money out of a man who claimed al-Qaida finance connections.

Prosecutors say the seven men plotted to topple the Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in five cities in hopes of starting an insurrection, although their plans never got very far.

The men face up to 70 years in prison if convicted of four terror-related conspiracy counts.
