The FBI planted an informant in Fazliddin Kurbanov’s truck-driving class in Salt Lake City. The pair became friends and discussed a bombing plot. Separately, Kurbanov was also indicted in Utah for distributing information about weapons of mass destruction. Prosecutors dropped the Utah indictment as part of a deal in which Kurbanov dropped the appeal of his Idaho conviction. Following that deal, Kurbanov was charged in a three-count indictment in California for stabbing a prison warden.
