“British man in missiles-to-Iran case to enter new plea

Associated Press

EL PASO, Texas – A British man accused of trying to buy missile parts from undercover U.S. agents for sale to Iran is to return to federal court in El Paso to enter a new plea.

Christopher Tappin had pleaded not guilty after his extradition from the United Kingdom in February. He was released on a $1 million bond in April and is scheduled for trial Nov. 5.

U.S. District Judge David Briones issued on Thursday an order scheduling a re-arraignment of the 65-year-old Brit for Nov. 1. The U.S. Attorney’s Office didn’t comment, and there’s no immediate reply to messages left with Tappin’s lawyer’s office.

Two other men indicted in the scheme have already been sentenced to prison.”
