(Newser) – One of the six men charged in the foiled terror attack on Fort Dix last spring pleaded guilty yesterday to conspiring to provide weapons to the other defendants, reports AP. New Jersey baker Agron Abdullahu, 25, supplied a pistol and semi-automatic rifle, but either declined to participate in the attack or was unaware of the other defendants' intent, according to the defense.

"My client was essentially used by these individuals," said his lawyer, who added that his client won't testify against the others because he has no information. Abdullahu, an Albanian born in Serbia, was granted asylum in the US eight years ago. He faces up to five years in prison. The others, charged with conspiring to kill military personnel, face a possible life sentence if convicted.
