If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison, the department said.

The criminal complaint said Goldberg distributed information to an informant on how to manufacture a bomb and instructed the informant to make a pressure-cooker bomb and fill it with nails, metal and other items dipped in rat poison.

The department said Goldberg instructed the informant to place the bomb at an upcoming memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, that was commemorating the Sept. 11 attacks.
