Cesar Sayoc, the Florida man accused of mailing pipe bombs to prominent critics of President Trump is indicted on charges that could send him to prison for life.
The 30-count indictment comes after Sayoc was arrested in Florida on five charges, carrying a potential sentence of nearly 50 years if convicted.
If he’s found guilty on the rest of the charges, Sayoc would face a mandatory life prison sentence.
According to the indictment, Sayoc sent 16 improvised explosive devices through the U.S. mail to prominent Democrats, and other critics of the President across the country.
None of them exploded, and no one was hurt.
Sayoc was born in New York City and attended college in North Carolina before moving to South Florida. He was an amateur body builder and a former male stripper, and was no stranger to the police. He has a lengthy criminal record, including arrests on theft, battery and steroid possession charges. In 2002, he was arrested and served a year of probation for threatening to throw a bomb during a conversation with a Florida utility representative.
He left a large footprint on social media, bashing prominent Democrats. His Facebook page also showed him attending a rally for President Donald Trump.
