NY, NJ bomb suspect Ahmad Khan Rahimi out of hospital, into prison

The man accused of setting off bombs in New York City and New Jersey is out of the hospital and behind bars.

28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahimi, the suspect behind the pipe bomb on the Jersey Shore and the pressure cooker bombs in Chelsea, was moved Tuesday to the State Prison in Trenton by the New Jersey Deptartment of Corrections.

He had been recovering in the hospital since he was shot seven times by police in Linden Sept. 19th.

Rahimi is charged with five counts of attempted murder of a police officer for the shootout during his capture.

Rahimi pleaded not guilty last week to charges he tried to kill police officers before they captured him.

An attorney entered the pleas as Rahimi appeared from his hospital bed in Newark in his first public appearance since last month's bombings and police chase.
