ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Three of the four people accused of plotting to bomb a small Muslim community in New York appeared in court Friday morning.

In an attempt to get their bail lowered, the lawyers for three of the four defendants -- Andrew Crysel, Brian Colaneri, and Vincent Vetromile -- tried to down play the plot.

An attorney says one of the homemade bombs police found at a home in Greece was the size of a jar of baby food. He claims the text messages between the defendants were like they were playing a video game, saying the attack "was never going to happen."

Bail was lowered to $250,000 for each of the three suspects.
