Lawyers Charged With Throwing Molotov Cocktail At Police Car Last Spring Offered Plea Deal By Feds

During the left wing riots of last spring, two young lawyers were charged with throwing a Molotov Cocktail at a police car.

One of them was actually photographed holding the device. They originally faced a charge of life in prison.

Now they have reportedly been offered a plea deal by federal prosecutors.

Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis were facing potential life sentences for seven charges; among them use of explosives, arson, and conspiracy. On May 29, the pair allegedly made an incendiary device from a bottle of beer, then threw it into a squad car during one of many riots that occurred after the death of George Floyd.

The two were caught on a surveillance camera, with Rahman purportedly holding the bottle in her hand just before the attack. Authorities later say they discovered another unused firebomb in the same vehicle on that video.

The two lawyers were pursued and arrested but pled not guilty. Their plea was not based on innocence but an argument that they were wrongly charged and being used as an example by the same people they were protesting. The details of the February 11 plea deal have not been released.

Mattis — a corporate attorney with Pryor Cashman until he was furloughed last spring — graduated from both Princeton University and New York University law school. Rahman graduated from Fordham University Law School.

Do these people deserve a plea deal?

Would they be offered a plea deal if they were Trump supporters?
