A courtroom sketch from November 2018 shows Cesar Sayoc, who pleaded guilty in NY on Thursday to sending bombs to media figures and to critics of President Trump. Sayoc faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced on September 12.
Sayoc was arrested in late October at a Plantation auto parts store.
Before a judge, Sayoc said he "never intended for the devices to explode", but acknowledged they could have been set off, according to NBC News.
Sayoc, who lived in a white truck plastered with pro-Trump and anti-Democrat stickers, was arrested in Florida five days after the first device was discovered in Soros's upstate NY mailbox.
Sayoc was accused of sending or addressing the devices to a series of high-profile Democrats, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, actor Robert De Niro and philanthropist George Soros, as well as to the CNN headquarters in NY.

These countries are grounding the Boeing 737 MAX 8
Air Canada , along with Southwest and American Airlines, had been the major outliers in resisting a grounding of the planes. This move comes just days after an Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed everyone on board, including one Winnipeg woman.
When Rakoff asked Sayoc whether he intended the devices to explode, or to kill or injure people, Sayoc said he did not.
"I know that these actions were wrong, and I'm sorry", Sayoc reportedly said.
Sayoc's guilty plea had been anticipated since his court docket showed last week that a pretrial conference scheduled for Thursday had been changed to a "plea" hearing.
The former strip club DJ/bouncer was one of the first examples of how Donald Trump has been radicalizing far right extremists to the point where they turn to violence in an attempt to silence anyone who speaks ill of their golden calf of a idol.
"For five days in October 2018, Cesar Sayoc rained terror across the country, sending high-ranking officials and former elected leaders explosive packages through the mail", U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in the statement. Packages were soon found in Florida, Delaware and California.
"In October 2018, I made devices that were created to look like pipe bombs and sent them in the mail", Sayoc said in court. After a four-day manhunt, he was arrested in Florida, where he appeared to be living in a white van plastered with conservative slogans and images. Authorities said all 16 were similar, describing them as "improvised explosive devices" containing pipe filled with explosive material, wiring and a small clock. Prosecutors said the evidence against Sayoc included DNA that linked him to 10 of the devices and fingerprints on two of them.
