‘NATO 3’ attorneys ask for terrorism charges to be dismissed
Attorneys for three men accused of plotting to use firebombs during last year’s NATO Summit in Chicago are asking the charges be dismissed.
Jared Chase, Brent Betterly and Brian Church are accused of trying to make Molotov cocktails with the intent to use them during the protests at last May’s summit.
In court Friday morning, their lawyers asked the judge to dismiss the terrorism counts against the suspects.
The attorneys claim the Illinois law, enacted after 9-11, is unconstitutional.
