OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A 21-year-old Washington state man was convicted Tuesday in the April 2004 firebombing of a Jewish temple in Oklahoma City.
A federal jury found Sean Gillespie of Spokane, Washington, guilty of three bombing charges for hurling a Molotov cocktail at Temple B'Nai Israel on April 1st, 2004.
Prosecutors showed jurors two videotapes, one from a surveillance camera at the temple that showed a person attacking the synagogue with a fire bomb.
Prosecutors say the other videotape was found in Gillespie's truck and showed him plotting his attack on the temple.
Formal sentencing for Gillespie will be in about three months. He faces a minimum of 35 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
