TOPEKA, Kan. – A judge will decide whether to grant bail to a Topeka man charged as an accomplice in an alleged Fort Riley bombing plot.
Alexander Blair will appear for a detention hearing Thursday. Blair's attorney, Christopher Joseph, has argued in a court filing that Blair is not a flight risk because he has little money and no car.
Blair is accused of giving money to John T. Booker, who authorities say was arrested in an FBI sting operation Friday as he attempted to arm what he thought was a 1,000 pound bomb outside of Fort Riley.
Blair was arrested a short time later. Prosecutors allege he knew about the plot and did not inform authorities.
