Sentencing of Md. man caught with bombmaking materials postponed
The Federal sentencing of Collin McKenzie-Gude, who pleaded guilty to storing bomb-making materials in his bedroom closets, was postponed for one week.
A federal judge in Montgomery County on Thursday delayed the sentencing hearing that began Thusrday, saying that McKenzie-Gude's attorney can call Patrick Yevsukov, the key witness in the federal government's case against McKenzie-Gude, as a witness.
The extra time, the judge said, would allow defense attorneys to digest Yevsukov's testimony.
Yevsukov has pleaded guilty to two counts of the manufacture or possession of a destructive device. He is to be sentenced soon.
McKenzie has also pleaded guilty to attempted carjacking in a Maryland Circuit Court. He is to be sentenced for that at a later date.
