ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Two of four suspects accused of plotting to attack an upstate New York Muslim community have pleaded guilty.
Nineteen-year-old Vincent Vetromile pleaded guilty Friday to first-degree attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He faces 7 to 12 years in prison.
Twenty-year-old Brian Colaneri pleaded guilty to terrorism-related conspiracy. He faces 4 to 12 years in prison.
Three men and a high school student were arrested in January and accused of planning to attack the rural community of Islamberg near Binghamton with explosives.
Lawyers for Vetromile and Colaneri said the plea deals were contingent on no federal charges being filed against their clients.
