Edgar Steele Faces 3 New Charges

A former lawyer for the Aryan Nations jailed in an alleged murder-for-hire plot has been indicted on three additional charges related to jailhouse phone calls and explosives discovered after his arrest. The new charges against Edgar J. Steele, 64, carry a maximum 10 to 30 years in prison. Steele already faced a possible 10 years in prison for an alleged plot federal agents say began in December and targeted his wife, Cynthia Steele, and mother-in-law. The licensed attorney, known for his unsuccessful defense of the Aryan Nations in a 2000 lawsuit, is being housed at the Spokane County Jail/Meghann M. Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels. More here.
