JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A psychologist has found a Florida man accused of sending bomb-making plans to an FBI informant for an alleged attack on the 9/11 anniversary not mentally sound enough to stand trial.
The prison psychologist’s opinion will be factored into a judge’s decision about whether 20-year-old Joshua Goldberg is mentally competent. That hearing is Dec. 14.
Goldberg is charged with distributing information relating to explosives and weapons of mass destruction.
A criminal complaint says Goldberg told an informant how to build a bomb and suggested targeting a Sept. 11 commemoration in Kansas City, Missouri. No bomb was produced.
The Florida Times-Union reports that psychologist Lisa Feldman of the federal detention center in Miami concluded Goldberg suffers from a mental disorder that impairs his ability to understand what is happening.
