Judge Rejects Bid to Limit Ohio Terror Suspect's Calls

A federal judge in Ohio ruled on Tuesday not to restrict phone access for Christopher Lee Cornell, who is accused of plotting to bomb the U.S. Capitol for ISIS, NBC News reported. Prosecutors had argued that Cornell's "unfettered access to a telephone" raised security concerns because he is a self-proclaimed ISIS supporter who might call other supporters of the terror group. Judge Sandra Beckwith, however, ruled that Boone County Jail in Kentucky, where Cornell is being held, isn't logistically able to restrict his phone access, NBC station WLWT in Cincinnati reported.
