BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Convicted Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph is fighting efforts by prosecutors to seize the small profits from his recently published autobiography.
Rudolph is serving a life sentence for bombings that killed two people in Alabama and Georgia in the 1990s.
Rudolph, in a letter filed last week in U.S. District Court in Birmingham, requests a hearing to contest the seizure.
Peggy Sanford, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Alabama, tells AL.com (
http://bit.ly/16Kjf10) that prosecutors have received more than $200 from LuLu Press Inc., which has stopped selling the book.
Rudolph pleaded guilty to detonating a bomb at a downtown park during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He also pleaded guilty to setting off a bomb outside an abortion clinic in downtown Birmingham in 1998.
