Suspect in Ala. terror plot changes plea to guiltyAugust 6, 2013 @ 7:06 pm
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Federal prosecutors in Alabama say a man has pleaded guilty to terrorism charges.
AL.com ( http://bit.ly/1cHGw9P) reports 25-year-old Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair changed his plea to guilty Tuesday. Authorities accused the man of plotting violent acts in America and looking to join an overseas jihadist movement.
Abukhdair was initially set to go to trial later this month and changed his plea during a pretrial conference in Mobile.
The man's co-defendant, Randy Wilson, also pleaded guilty in the case and both men are now scheduled to be sentenced later this year.
Prosecutors have agreed to recommend a 15-year prison sentence on a charge of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.
The man was deported from Egypt after being arrested in November 2010 on suspicion of being involved in terrorist activities.
