Cesar Sayoc, the man officials say mailed at least 14 pipe bombs to prominent Democrat politicians and news outlets had his first day in court earlier this week.

According to a report from Reuters, Sayoc, a 56-year-old man who was living in Florida, has officially been charged with five separate federal crimes and faces a prison sentence of 58 years. While in federal court in Miami, Sayoc was denied bail and will have to wait until Friday to go before the judge again.

Despite the charges of “interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents, threatening interstate communications, and assaulting federal officers,” Sayoc’s defense attorneys told reporters waiting outside of the courthouse that the prosecution’s case was “flimsy.”

“All there is this thin amount of evidence that has been alleged in that complaint,” said Sayoc’s attorney Jamie Benjamin, who also told reporters that his client was already being tried in the court of public opinion.
