Two New York lawyers pleaded guilty on Wednesday for their roles in a Molotov cocktail attack during May 2020 protests sparked by George Floyd’s death, Reuters reported.

Prosecutors said that lawyer Urooj Rahman, threw a gasoline-filled bottle into an empty police vehicle, attempted handing out Molotov cocktails to others, and then ran away from the scene in a minivan driven by Colinford Mattis.

“I deeply regret my conduct and wish I had made better choices on that night,” Mattis said.

Both lawyers reportedly expressed regret for their actions and acknowledged that they would likely be disbarred from the practice as a result of their guilty pleas.

U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan set up a sentence planned to start on February 8th. The lawyers are facing up to 10 years in prison under a terrorism-related sentencing provision.

“The terrorism enhancement is going to be a big issue. I have no idea where I’m going to come out on that,” Cogan said.

Rahman’s lawyer, Paul Shechtman, said that the two “do not deserve a prison sentence for conduct that occurred in the heat of the moment on one of the most heated nights in modern American history.”

The two lawyers garnered a large amount of sympathy from others as well, with South African human rights lawyer Richard Spoor sharing a story of the two before expressing his sympathies.

“A terribly sad story,” Spoor posted. Two young and idealistic lawyers get wrapped up in the BLM protest movement. In a moment of madness, they throw a Molotov cocktail into an abandoned police car and burn it. Now they face a minimum of 35 years in federal prison.”
