Prosecutors have discussed a plea deal with the man accused of placing what he thought was a bomb inside a trash can near Wrigley Field.

Sami Samir Hassoun was charged last year with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to detonate an explosive device.

Prosecutors say the 23-year-old Lebanese immigrant actually had a fake bomb given to him by undercover FBI agents.

Thursday, federal prosecutors told the judge they have discussed a possible plea deal. For now, the judge has set a February trial date.
