* United States v. Abdulmutallab (E.D. Mich. Jan. 6, 2010) (indictment)
The indictment against Abdulmutallab is now out, superseding the criminal complaint. Nothing unexpected here. Six counts, including an 18 USC 2332a WMD attempt count bearing a potential life sentence (recall that “WMD” in this statutory context more or less covers explosives generally, not just NRBC attacks) and a raft of aircraft, explosive, and attempted murder offenses with 20- and 30-year maximums.
