Resentencing for Al Qaeda plotter

June 07, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in McLean upheld the conviction of an Al Qaeda member who plotted to assassinate President Bush, but it said he must be resentenced. The court rejected a 30-year prison term and ordered a new sentencing hearing for Ahmed Omar Abu Ali. Prosecutors had argued that the judge deviated from sentencing guidelines that called for life in prison.
