Jury finishes first day of deliberations in terror trial
Associated Press - March 28, 2008 5:33 PM ET

MIAMI (AP) - A Florida jury has wrapped up its first day of deliberations in the trial of 6 men accused of plotting terrorist attacks against Chicago's Sears Tower and FBI offices.

Before the deliberations started, prosecutors appealed to the jury not to buy defense claims that the plot was really just a con aimed at getting some money.

The alleged ringleader testified that he faked interest in terrorism in an effort to scam $50,000 out of a man he thought had been sent by al-Qaida. The man was actually an FBI informant.

It's the second trial for the six men. The first trial ended with a hung jury for them and with the acquittal of a seventh person.

Yeah, isn’t there anything important to write about, like Brittney Spears?

Why do these guys get a lawyer and a jury trial? How does the government decide?
