In a Sacramento, California, courtroom on January 22, 1998, 
Theodore J. Kaczynski (above) pleaded guilty to all federal
charges against him, acknowledging his responsibility
for a 17-year campaign of package bombings attributed
to the “
Unabomber.”

Kaczynski accepted a sentence of life in prison without the
possibility of parole in return for a plea of guilty to all federal
charges; he also gave up the right to appeal any rulings in
the case. Though Kaczynski later attempted to withdraw his
guilty plea, arguing that it had been involuntary, Judge Burrell
denied the request, and a federal appeals court upheld the
ruling. Kaczynski was remanded to a maximum-security
prison in
Colorado, where he is serving his life sentence.
