Gets Up To 45-Years For Dropping Pipe Bomb On Bike Shop
What do you get when you drop a bomb from a general aviation
aircraft? In the case of James Edmiston, you get as many as
45-years in a federal prison.
Oh, and you lose your pilot's license.
Edmiston was first stripped of his ticket in 1993, after
authorities say he dropped a pipe bomb on the C&C Cycle Shop in
Russell, IA. Federal agents picked him up again last year, after
alleging he tried again to rent an aircraft.
US Attorney Mark Whitaker said the feds took the case seriously
in this post-9/11 environment, even if Edmiston showed no evidence
of planning another bombing run.
Edmiston pleaded guilty to non-aviation-related charges in
federal court this week. He's scheduled for sentencing on August
