Court date delayed for suspect in NYC bomb plot
NYC bomb plot suspect's court date delayed after lawyer switch; appearance now set for Dec. 5
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A New York City man charged with making bombs and plotting to attack police stations and post offices won't be back in court until next month.

Jose Pimentel had been scheduled to learn Friday whether he'd been indicted, but the court date has been pushed back to Dec. 5. The postponement came as a new lawyer, Lori Cohen, was appointed for him.

Authorities say Pimentel was recorded building a pipe bomb and told a confidential informant his targets included government buildings.

He was represented initially by the Legal Aid Society. Then it emerged that Legal Aid had a conflict of interest because it represented the informant in an unrelated case.

A Legal Aid lawyer also had said Pimentel wanted another attorney. His previous lawyer has said Pimentel wasn't a true threat.
