Plea Bargain For Local Terrorist

Local naughty white boy Ian McCombs pled guilty today to damaging two Qwest utility boxes here in Saint Paul and knocking out telephone service to over a quarter-million people. As part of a plea agreement, McCombs – who has numerous previous convictions for burglary, among other things – skates on the relatively insignificant “possession of burglary tools” charge. Hey, compared to screwing with critical infrastructure, having a screwdriver really isn’t a big deal…

No word on what, if any, consequences he gets for violating his parole, but sentencing is due February 20th, and he apparently faces two to three years for these offenses. His buddies’ court appearances are still forthcoming; it’ll be interesting to see what if any additional changes they face in connection with other stuff they’re rumored to have done.
