New York, New York, U.S. - 20 year old anarchist, David Segal pleaded guilty to felony "malicious mischief" in federal court Wednesday morning in relation to a January 31, 2005 attempt to burn down a Bronx military recruiting station. In return for the plea the prosecutor gave a sentencing recommendation of 10-16 months. The judge is not required to abide by the recommendation and could sentence David to 10 years in prison, but David's attorney Martin Stolar, president of the New York chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, believes that the sentence would adhere to the prosecutor's guidelines. Additionally, the judge could break up the sentence between jail time and home confinement.

David will have to wait until his December 16, sentencing date to know for sure. Until then he will be looking for a new job in the area of Litchfield, Connecticut, where he has been living with his parents since they posted a $15,000 cash bond to secure his release only days after he his arrest. David is required to be employed as a condition of his release and would like to find an apprentice as a carpenter. He is also looking for people interested in caring for some of his eight guinea pigs while he is incarcerated. In a statement David thanked his supporters for "all the support and care you've all shown already. It means so fucking much."
