Wilkes-Barre man found guilty of terrorism

Posted: July 13, 2007

SCRANTON - Michael Curtis Reynolds, a Wilkes-Barre loner, was found guilty today in federal court here of all four terrorism charges leveled against him.

The jury of six men and six women, after deliberating for 1 hour and 15 minutes, found that Reynolds, 49, had provided "material support to al-Qaeda," "knowingly provided resources to be used in maliciously damaging or destroying property by means of force or explosive," "solicited others to engage in a felony using physical force agaist property," and "knowingly distributed through the internet information to be used and in furtherance of criminal violence."

According to federal sentencing guidelines, Reynolds could face about 60 years in prison. The defendant listened impassively to the jury's judgment, nodding once when he heard the verdict on the first count. A date for sentencing has not yet been set.
