Detroit Fed Judge Sets August Plea Deadline for Underwear Bomber

The man dubbed the Underwear Bomber has until Aug. 19 to hammer out a plea deal, the Associated reported. Trial is set for October.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried blowing up an Amsterdam to Detroit bound Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas day in 2009, appeared in U.S. District Court on Thursday in downtown Detroit.

Prosecutors had asked for the plea deadline for Abdulmutallab, who is representing himself, AP reported.

Knowledgeable sources have privately said that Abdumutallab, should he choose to knock out a plea, won’t have much bargaining power since he was caught in the act in front of a number of witnesses.

They say he might be able to negotiate for certain conditions in prison, but isn’t likely to get much more.
