  • A change to the court schedule could mean a change in direction for the case of Buford Rogers, a Montevideo man alleged to have been involved in what FBI agents called a "terror plot" in May.
    Though no terrorism charges have been leveled against Rogers, he was charged with three counts of possessing unregistered destructive devices, and of being in possession of a firearm as a felon.
    Rogers is not allowed to possess firearms following a third-degree burglary conviction in 2011, related to the theft of guns, tools and a laptop from garages around western Minnesota.
    The 25 year old was expected to go on trial for the explosive devices and firearm charges next week, but a change in the schedule now shows a change of plea hearing is scheduled for Friday.
    There is no official word on what Rogers will be changing his plea to, and for which charges.
    More in the American-News this week. Expect an update online on Friday, when more information is available.
