NEW YORK - A Florida man charged with sending pipe bombs to prominent critics of President Donald Trump including New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, is expected to plead guilty next week.
The charges said 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc aimed to "kill, injure and intimidate an individual and unlawfully to damage and destroy a building, vehicle, and other real and person property."
Sayoc is accused of mailing 16 explosive devices to people across the country, none of which exploded.
Other targets included CNN, Joe Biden, former President Obama, Kamala Harris and Andrew Cuomo.
Without a plea deal, Sayoc, 56, faced charges carrying a potential penalty of mandatory life in prison. It was not known which charge or charges the plea would involve.
