Court date reset for 3 in Vegas ‘boogaloo’ terror plot case
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Arraignment was postponed in Nevada state court for three men accused of plotting to firebomb a Las Vegas racial injustice protest to spark violence and advance views of an extremist anti-government “boogaloo” group.
Stephen Parshall, Andrew Lynam and William Loomis were not brought in custody Thursday from a private detention facility in rural Pahrump. That’s where they’re being held on separate but similar federal charges.
A judge reset their hearing for Aug. 27. Defense attorneys say the men will plead not guilty. They’re already scheduled for trial Nov. 31 on federal conspiracy and firearm charges.
