Minnesota man arrested in what FBI had called a terror plot to be sentenced on weapons counts

A militia member who was arrested in what the FBI once called a terror plot to blow up a small-town Minnesota police station is scheduled to be sentenced Monday on weapons charges.

Twenty-five-year-old Buford Braden Rogers pleaded guilty in January to one count of possessing a firearm illegally and one count of possessing an unregistered destructive device. He was never charged with terrorism.

Prosecutors want more than five years in prison, arguing that Rogers is a threat to public safety. But Assistant Federal Defender Andrew Mohring is asking for two years or less.

Mohring says the case was overblown. Prosecutors counter that the FBI had information about an imminent threat and say it's naive to criticize the FBI's response in hindsight.
