A 16-year-old Spaniard was sentenced to six years in a juvenile detention center on Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to charges he helped steal and
transport the dynamite used in the March 11 Madrid train bombings.
The juvenile identified only by his initials G.M. because he is a minor made only a short appearance in the armored basement courtroom in Madrids
High Court building.
Judge Jose Maria Vazquez Honrubia asked the defendant if he agreed with the charges and the six-year term proposed by the prosecutor.
He replied simply: Yes.
The public was separated from the court by bullet-proof glass. The suspect, with his mother sitting next to him, was hidden from view by a screen.
It was the first trial arising from the bombings which killed 191 people and wounded 1,900, the most devastating attack in modern Spanish history.
The TNT was later packed into 14 bombs of roughly 22 to 25 pounds each that were hidden in sports bags and left aboard four packed commuter trains.
Ten of the bombs went off at roughly the same time, three duds were destroyed by police, and one found 12 hours later in a police warehouse where it
had been moved unintentionally provided virtually all the breaks in the case, starting with the mobile phone used to trigger the detonator.
