Jury deliberates in Miami Liberty City Seven terrorism case

(N.T.A.R.C.) A jury considering the guilt or innocence of seven men accused of plotting terror attacks completed a seventh day of deliberations Tuesday without reaching a verdict or announcing an impasse.

Jurors have twice told U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard they were deadlocked in the case of the so-called “Liberty City Seven.” They were ordered Wednesday to try again to reach a decision.

Jurors were scheduled to resume deliberations on Wednesday.

The seven men are accused of plotting with al-Qaida to destroy Chicago’s Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in Miami and elsewhere. They face up to 70 years in prison if convicted of four terrorism-related conspiracy charges.

The men never obtained explosives or other weaponry necessary to carry out such attacks, and a man they knew as Brother Mohammed from al-Qaida was actually a paid FBI informant. The men were recorded by the FBI swearing an oath to al-Qaida.

Their leader, 33-year-old Narseal Batiste, testified that he only went along with the terror plots as part of a scheme to con Brother Mohammed out of $50,000.
