BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Convicted Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph is fighting efforts by prosecutors to seize the small profits from his recently published autobiography.

Rudolph is serving a life sentence for bombings that killed two people in Alabama and Georgia in the 1990s.

Rudolph, in a letter filed last week in U.S. District Court in Birmingham, requests a hearing to contest the seizure.

Peggy Sanford, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Alabama, tells that prosecutors have received more than $200 from LuLu Press Inc., which has stopped selling the book.

Rudolph pleaded guilty to detonating a bomb at a downtown park during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He also pleaded guilty to setting off a bomb outside a now-defunct abortion clinic in downtown Birmingham in 1998.
