Jurors deliberate for 7th day in 'Newburgh Four' trial

Posted: Updated:

After seven days of deliberations, there is still no verdict in the "Newburgh Four" terror plot trial.

The jury has been deciding whether James Cromitie, Onta Williams, David Williams and Laguerre Payen plotted on their own to blow up Bronx synagogues and shoot down military planes at Stewart Air Base, or if the government entrapped them into the plot.

An FBI informant befriended the men and promised them $5,000 each if they went through with the plot. The defense insists this led to the involvement of the defendants.

However, the federal government says it has hundreds of hours of surveillance that proves the men are dangerous and would commit terrorist acts, even if they didn?t meet the informant.
