ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — An upstate New York man charged with helping to build a mobile X-ray device meant to kill people at a mosque and an Islamic center has pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorists.
Fifty-five-year-old Eric Feight of Hudson made the admission Wednesday in federal court in Albany. He's being held until sentencing May 22 and faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.
In a separate proceeding, 49-year-old co-defendant Glendon Scott Crawford of Galway was arraigned on three charges, including conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction. He pleaded not guilty and was ordered detained pending further court action.
The two men have been jailed since last June for their alleged plot in the greater Albany area.
Authorities said the device was inoperable. Nobody was hurt.
