Feds: Va. Man Deserves Max for Aiding Terrorists

Posted:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say an electrician from northern Virginia deserves a maximum 15-year prison sentence for his online efforts to support a Pakistani terrorist organization.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled Friday for 24-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge. He pleaded guilty to providing material support to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani organization that has been blamed for the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai that killed 166 people.

Court papers reveal new details about Ahmad's support of Lashkar. In addition to producing an online propaganda video, prosecutors say Ahmad also received military training from the group and tried to recruit others to join.

Ahmad's lawyers are asking for only a 2-year term. They say he did not appreciate the criminality of helping Lashkar, a group that has widespread support in his native country.
