ALBANY - A Hudson man charged with helping to build a mobile X-ray device meant to kill people at a mosque and an Islamic center has pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorists.

Eric Feight, 55, made the admission Wednesday in federal court in Albany. He's being held until sentencing May 22 and faces a maximum of 15 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and up to life in supervised release.

In a separate proceeding, co-defendant Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway was arraigned on three charges, including attempting to produce and use a radiological dispersal device, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and distributing information relating to weapons of mass destruction.

He pleaded not guilty and was ordered detained pending further court action.

The indictment against Crawford relates to "the development of and plans to use a remotely operated radiation-emitting device to kill humans," a Wednesday news release from the U.S. Department of Justice stated.
