Carlos Bledsoe who murdered PVT William Long outside of a Little Rock recruiting station last spring has admitted that he is a jihadist for al Qaeda and asked that his not guilty plea be vacated according to Fox News;
Abdulhakim Muhammad’s attorney, Claiborne Ferguson, said Thursday night that his client sent a letter earlier this month to the judge in his case asking to change his plea to capital murder and attempted capital murder charges.
Ferguson said he hadn’t discussed the request with his client before the letter was sent. Under Arkansas law prosecutors would have to agree and waive the death penalty before the judge could consider it, Ferguson said.
Of course, Ferguson claims that his client is unbalanced and that’s why he confessed, but a conversion to Islam and a trip to Yemen for training say otherwise. And there must’ve been a reason that the FBI was tailing and investigating Bledsoe before the killing.
