Last week Mark Neiweem (‘Migs’), of the NATO 5, accepted a non-cooperating plea deal in Cook County Court to felony charges. He received a 3-year sentence, and will likely get credit for the 300 days he has already served. ‘Sabi,’ also of the NATO 5, was transfered to boot camp at the end of March. He will spend 4 months in boot camp, and then likely be deported to his native Poland.
In other NATO 5 news, a judge recently denied a constitutionality motion which argued that the Illinois terrorism statute is unconstitutionally vague, both on its face and as applied to this particular case.
