The U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch has ruled that 21-year-old Fabjan Alameti will remain in custody in Montana. His trial is currently pending over charges that he had discussions about joining the Islamic State, attacking random people, avenging the shootings at two New Zealand mosques as well as lieing to authorities about all this.
The Judge ruled that he was too much of a threat to be allowed out of custody and sent back to his mother’s apartment in the Bronx.
Alameti was apprehended at a gun range on April 3rd. He pleads not guilty to making false statements involving terrorism and possession of a firearm while using marijuana. His public defender argues that he is allowed to say whatever under the First Amendment and has no criminal record
