NEW YORK - A federal defender is complaining that bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami has not had access to a lawyer since he was arrested in New Jersey on Monday.

David E. Patton said in a letter to a federal judge Tuesday night that Rahami has been held and questioned by federal law enforcement agents since his arrest.

Federal terrorism charges were filed against Rahami on Tuesday night.

Authorities say Rahami planted bombs in New York City and New Jersey over the weekend.

Rahami was wounded in a shootout with police and is in a hospital in New Jersey.

Patton says his office is available to meet with Rahami in New Jersey and represent him at a telephone or videoconference appearance.
