NEW YORK — A man charged with plotting to blow up synagogues in New York City has pleaded guilty to state terrorism charges.
Ahmed Ferhani entered the plea Tuesday in the unusual state-level terror case.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office has said Ferhani wanted to attack a synagogue. Prosecutors say he bought three guns and a grenade to do so. The buy was a sting.
His lawyers previously said Ferhani was mentally unstable. They have said the prosecution was based on insufficient evidence and dubious tactics.
Ferhani and a co-defendant were arrested last year.
