Attorneys in Unabomb case wrangle over evidence
November 18, 1996
SACRAMENTO, California (CNN) -- Attorneys for the man accused of being the Unabomber and federal prosecutors were scheduled to be in court Monday to resume a tug of war over evidence gathered in the Unabomber investigation.
Defense attorneys are seeking access to handwritten notes and logs from the agents who searched Theodore Kaczynski's Montana cabin last April. Kaczynski's defense attorneys are trying to get all the evidence seized in the cabin thrown out.
Later this week, attorneys will be back in court to give the judge a status report on the process of building their cases.
Prosecutors filed papers Friday saying they will introduce evidence linking Kaczynski to more bombings and attacks, and the defense said they may try to have the trial moved out of Sacramento.
Both the first and last victims of the Unabomber were in San Francisco. Since 1978, three people died from blasts attributed to the Unabomber, and 23 were injured.
In June, Kaczynski pleaded innocent to a 10-count federal indictment in connection with four of the 16 bombings. He remains in isolation at the Sacramento County Jail and will not attend the hearing.
