5 Suspects Convicted of Conspiracy

December 22, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
Five Muslim immigrants could spend their lives in prison for conspiring to massacre soldiers at New Jersey's Fort Dix.A jury spared the men of attempted murder charges, but found them guilty of conspiring to commit murder in 2007.

Defense attorneys said the plot to attack Fort Dix was all talk and they weren't seriously planning anything. But the jury did not have to find that the men had any specific target in mind to convict them. They now face life in prison at their sentencing in April.
