Dozens rally against 'Newburgh Four' guilty verdict

Posted: Updated:

Dozens turned out for a rally in Newburgh today to protest this week's guilty verdict in the "Newburgh Four" terror case.

The activists gathered after the four men were found guilty of plotting to blow up synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes at the Stewart Air National Guard Base.

Family members say the verdict is an injustice to four men they claim were impoverished and trapped by an undercover FBI agent. Activists say they will now take their fight to Washington.

The four men are due back in court for sentencing in March.
