New Plea Expected For Md. Man Caught In Sting

BALTIMORE (AP) — A man accused of trying to detonate a phony car bomb outside a military recruiting center in suburban Baltimore is expected to enter a new plea next week.

Antonio Martinez, 22, who was charged with attempted murder of federal officers and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, is scheduled for rearraignment Wednesday in federal court. Martinez originally pleaded not guilty.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney for Maryland noted that rearraignments tend to indicate plans for a new plea, but said she could not comment on this case specifically. Martinez’s federal public defender did not respond to messages seeking comment.

Court documents detail a sting that allegedly caught Martinez trying to detonate a phony car bomb provided by the FBI outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center in Catonsville.
