Man in RNC Molotov cocktail case pleads guilty

Previously he had fought the charges, claiming he was entrapped by a government informant.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) âÄî One of the men accused of making Molotov cocktails during the Republican National Convention is reversing himself and pleading guilty to federal charges. Twenty-three-year-old David Guy McKay pleaded guilty on Tuesday. Previously he had fought the charges, claiming he was entrapped by a government informant. However, the Austin, Texas, man is now telling a federal judge that he and Bradley Neal Crowder would have made the bombs with or without the informant. He pleaded to three felony counts, avoiding a retrial. He used the entrapment defense at his first trial in January, which ended with a hung jury. Crowder pleaded guilty in January and is awaiting sentencing. He didn’t testify in the first trial, but was scheduled to do so in the retrial. ___ Information from: St. Paul Pioneer Press, http://www.twincities.com
