Suspect in terrorism sting was ‘set up’ by FBI informant accused of fraud in Palm Beach County, defense says

Charges against a Palm Beach County man arrested in a terrorism sting last year should be thrown out because of “outrageous conduct” by the FBI and federal prosecutors, the defense team says. Gregory Hubbard, 53, a former U.S. Marine and sculptor from West Palm Beach, has been locked up for a little more than a year on allegations that carry a maximum punishment of 20 years in prison. He has pleaded not guilty to charges he tried to help Islamic State terrorists and tried to go fight with them in Syria. The defense team alleges Hubbard was “set up” by at least one informant who worked undercover for the FBI and that the prosecution team was “not only aware but complicit” in the informant’s “vendetta.” The informant came up with the entire plot which he “masterminded with the FBI,” the attorneys wrote.
