Possible plea deal for Wrigley Field bomb suspect

September 1, 2011 (CHICAGO)

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.
