State plans appeal in LaDue case

WASECA, Minn. – Two juvenile co-defendants in the Waseca bomb plot case have plead not guilty for aiding and abetting 17-year-old John LaDue in making explosives.

On Monday, a judge dismissed LaDue of four counts of attempted murder and two counts of attempted damage to property.

He is still facing six counts of possession of explosives.

The prosecution says they plan on appealing the decision to drop the attempted murder charges. “We knew there was a possibility and we obviously looked at it and whether it was appropriate but we could have done this without all the resources, travel, time, people,” Defense Attorney Steve Bergeson said.
