Prosecutors anticipate that Frank James will plead guilty to subway car shooting charges next month.
James is suspected of exploding a smoke canister, opening fire in a crowded New York City subway vehicle, and shooting 10 people earlier this year.
Accused of Mass Transportation Terrorism
On Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York announced that James would plead guilty, according to Fox affiliate WNYW.
Last Monday, a Brooklyn federal grand jury accused James of 10 counts of mass transportation terrorism.
James, who first pleaded not guilty to a single count of mass transportation system terrorism, was indicted again.
Accused of Firing Gun
James was accused of firing a gun during a violent crime.
Prosecutors claimed James would plead guilty on January 3, 2023.
A detention document says that James is thought to have gotten on a Brooklyn subway train on April 12, set off a smoke bomb, and fired 33 times at scared people who had nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
Officials reported 29 injuries, including 10 gunshot wounds.
James was accused of mass transit terrorism and gun violence. He might be imprisoned for life.
James’s face and identity were aired and printed everywhere, and a blast was sent to every New Yorker’s smartphone until he was caught.
