Man indicted in connection with Washington Township explosions

 

WASHINGTON TWP., Pa. - A Northampton County man arrested in connection with a series of explosions is expected to enter into a plea agreement, defense attorney John Waldron said.

Jason Muzzicato is expected to plead guilty to possessing a firearm by a person with a protection from abuse order, possession of a destructive device, and operating an aircraft when not registered.

A charge of possession of firearms by an unlawful user of a controlled substance will be dropped, Waldron said.

A plea hearing is set for Dec. 17 at 4 p.m. He is expected to be sentenced three months later.

Muzzicato is currently in custody.

Jason Muzzicato hasn't been charged with detonating any of the explosives that rocked a Washington Township community.

Investigators say they found improvised explosives and nine guns when they raided his home.

Muzzicato has also been named as a suspect in a series of vehicles vandalized by nails and fluids in the Bangor Area. He's not been charged in that.
