Man Pleads Guilty in Plot to Attack Seattle Military Center

Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) -- A 32-year-old man pleaded guilty to plotting an attack in June, with machine guns and grenades, on a military center in Seattle where enlistees are screened and processed.

Walli Mujahidh, also known as Frederick Domingue Jr., of Los Angeles, faces as long as 32 years in prison under the terms of his plea agreement, the Justice Department said today in a statement. The other defendant in the case, Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, also known as Joseph Anthony Davis, of Seattle, is scheduled to go on trial in May.

Law-enforcement officials were tipped off by an informer who was approached by the defendants to participate in the attack and to supply weapons, prosecutors said. The two men were arrested when they took possession of disabled firearms supplied by the informer, according to prosecutors.

“Today’s plea underscores the threat posed by homegrown violent extremists and the need for continued vigilance to detect and dismantle their plots,” Lisa Monaco, assistant attorney general for national security, said in the statement.

Mujahidh’s lawyers, Lee Covell and Michele Shaw, didn’t immediately return calls to their offices for comment on the guilty plea.

The case is U.S. v. Abdul-Latif, 11-228, U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington (Seattle).
