The radical leftist biochemist suspected of firebombing the Madison office of a pro-life group called Wisconsin Family Action has pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to cause damage by means of fire or an explosive

Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, 29, now faces a mandatory minimum of five years in jail, with a maximum penalty of 20 years behind bars. He is set to be sentenced by a district court judge on Feb. 14, 2024.

In a press release dated Dec. 1, the Department of Justice announced that Roychowdhury had admitted to carrying out the attack in the early morning hours of May 8, 2022. Two other suspects were with him that day, however, they remain at large and there has been no indication that he gave up any information that could lead to their arrest.

General Matthew G. Olsen of the DOJ's National Security division explained in March that Roychowdhury had "used an incendiary device in violation of federal law in connection with his efforts to terrorize and intimidate a private organization."

Investigators discovered two Molotov cocktails made of burnt mason jars, one of which was "about half full of a clear fluid that smelled like an accelerant," along with a disposable lighter.

During the incident, graffiti was also spray-painted on the side of the building stating, "If abortions aren't safe then you aren't either." 

Far-left pro-abortion group Jane's Revenge immediately took responsibility for the attack, claiming that it was "only a warning," and threatening to destroy the infrastructure of "medical imperialism."

It wasn't until March 2023, however, that Roychowdhury was first identified as a suspect. Investigators were able to track him down and obtained DNA samples from a fast-food container he discarded, then compared it with samples from the crime scene. They matched. Soon after that, he traveled from Wisconsin to Portland, Maine, and from there on to Boston.

Roychowdhury was eventually arrested at Logan International Airport in Boston as he tried to board a one-way flight to the capital city of Guatemala.
