    Va. man gets 12 years for aiding terrorists

    Published April 13, 2012 | Associated Press

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. – An electrician from northern Virginia who admitted producing an online propaganda video for a Pakistani terrorist organization has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

    A federal judge in Alexandria imposed the sentence Friday for 24-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge. Ahmad pleaded guilty to providing material support to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani organization that was blamed for the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai that killed 166 people.

    Prosecutors sought a maximum term of 15 years. They said that in addition to producing the propaganda video, Ahmad also received military training from Lashkar and professed a wish to die as a martyr.

    Ahmad's lawyers had asked for only a two-year term. They say he did not appreciate the criminality of helping Lashkar, a group that has widespread support in his native Pakistan.

    Only the prosecutor knows the real answer, and the maximum sentence requested was 15 years, but my guess is the US government is satisfied to keep him out of circulation for those years he will be in prison. I guess early release for good behavior might be possible, certainly to be followed by deportation.
