Defense: Public misinformed in alleged terror case

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The defense attorney for a man arrested in what the FBI has called a thwarted terror plot in western Minnesota says authorities have given the public misinformation about his client.

A detention hearing was postponed Wednesday for 24-year-old Buford Rogers of Montevideo, who appeared in U.S. District Court in St. Paul. Assistant Federal Defender Andrew Mohring requested additional time to investigate the accusations against his client.

Rogers is charged with one count of illegally possessing a firearm. He was arrested Friday after authorities found a cache of explosives and weapons in his parent's mobile home in Montevideo.

The FBI says the attack was still being planned. They have not released details of their investigation.

Rogers has a prior felony burglary conviction and isn't allowed to have a gun
