The father of an admitted terrorist was sentenced to four and a half years in prison on Friday.
A hearing is under way in New York to sentence the father of a convicted terrorist with ties to Colorado.
The Colorado father of an admitted terrorist was convicted Friday of charges he destroyed evidence and lied to investigators to cover up his son’s al-Qaida-sanctioned plot to attack the New York City subways in 2009 as one of a trio of suicide bombers.
Prosecutors say a Colorado father lied to the FBI to try to protect his terrorist son during an investigation of a 2009 plot to attack New York City subways.
Federal prosecutors have brought additional charges against the father of an al-Qaida associate who plotted to use homemade bombs for a suicide attack on New York’s subway system, according to an indictment made public Tuesday.
