Terry Nichols Biography
(American Domestic Terrorist Who Was Convicted of Being an Accomplice in the Oklahoma City Bombing)
Birthday: April 1, 1955 (Aries)
Born In: Lapeer, Michigan, United States
Terry Nichols is an American homegrown terrorist, sentenced to life imprisonment without parole for his role in the Oklahoma City bombing case. Raised on their family farm in Michigan, he could never hold a job very long. Over the time, he grew an anti-government sentiment; but it was the attack on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, by the federal agencies in 1993, which triggered an urge to take revenge. Plotting with Timothy McVeigh, whom he had met and befriended during a short stint at the US army, he made all the arrangements to leave a truck laden with bombs in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma on April 19, 1995. The bomb killed at least 168 people, including nineteen children. While McVeigh was sentenced to death for actually triggering the bomb, Nichols was sent to life imprisonment for being an accomplice. Their third accomplice, Michael Fortier, became a state witness.
