Federal prosecutors allege between July and September, Goldberg instructed an FBI informant on the manufacture of a pressure-cooker device, that was to be packed with nails and metal dipped in rat poison.

He was arrested for distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass destruction.

He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
