Crump, Adams Trial into Fourth Day
The trial of Samuel Crump and Ray Adams continues in federal court in Gainesville.
Testimony moved into its second day Wednesday.
During Wednesday’s testimony, the Associated Press reports that the government’s informant in the case, Joe Sims, took the stand and prosecutors played tapes of conversations Sims recorded that took place between him, Crump, and Adams, and others.
Prosecutors said those tapes are proof of Crump and Adams plotting attacks against the government.
However, defense attorneys argued the two men were just talking big and were not going to take action.
Crump and Adams are charged with Conspiracy to Possess and Produce a Biological Toxin, Ricin, For Use as a Weapon and Possession of a Biologicial Toxin, Ricin, For Use as a Weapon. Adams is also charged with Attempted Possession of a Biological Toxin, Ricin, For Use as a Weapon.
