A jury has been selected in the case of two North Georgia men facing federal charges in what prosecutors call a terror plot in which the men targeted U.S. cities and officials by conspiring and attempting to make the toxin ricin. Eight men and six women were selected Monday to hear the case against Ray Adams and Samuel Crump, both of Toccoa, who were arrested in 2011 along with two others. An indictment filed Dec. 10 accuses Adams and Crump of attending meetings to discuss forming a covert militia group to plan “armed attacks on government buildings and federal government employees, including law enforcement agents.”
