The prosecutor’s office insisted that Frank James had planned the attack in advance.
A court in the United States has not allowed Frank James, accused of shooting in the New York subway, to be released on bail while the case is being considered. This was reported by ABC television with reference to the court order.
James, who was previously charged with a terrorist attack on public transport, appeared in court in the Southern District of New York. The prosecutor’s office insisted that James had planned the attack in advance. “The presence of the accused outside the federal penitentiary institution during the consideration of the case poses a threat to the public, he must remain in custody,” the prosecutor noted.
The judge agreed with the arguments of the prosecutor’s office. ABC explains that the lawyer appointed by the court to James accepted the court’s decision, while reserving the right to request the release of the accused on bail in the future.
