Motion hearing expected in X-Ray gun case

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. – The X-Ray gun case is expected to move forward in Albany.

A motion hearing has been scheduled for Monday at 1 p.m.

Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, along with another man, allegedly attempted to build an X-Ray weapon to hurt and kill people at a mosque and Islamic Center. 

Crawford pleaded not guilty to Attempt to Produce and Use Radiological Dispersal Device, Conspiracy to Use Weapon of Mass Destruction and Distribution of Information Relating to Weapons of Mass Destruction back in January.

Prosecutors said he planned and developed a scheme to use a remotely operated radiation-emitting device to kill human targets - specifically Muslims and enemies of Israel.

Crawford’s co-conspirator, Eric Feight, 55, accepted a plea agreement at the same time Crawford pleaded guilty. Feight was sentenced to federal prison in May. 

If Crawford is found guilty on Attempt to Produce and Use Radiological Dispersal Device, he faces 25 years to life in prison and a $2,000,000 fine. If convicted on Conspiracy to Use Weapon of Mass Destruction, he faces 20 years to life in prison and a $250,000 fine. Finally, if convicted of Distribution of Information Relating to Weapons of Mass Destruction, he could receive up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
