Md. man sentenced for recruiting center bomb plot
Maryland man sentenced to 25 years for bomb plot against military recruiting center
By The Associated Press

BALTIMORE (AP) ' A Maryland man who said he wanted to wage jihad against the United States has been sentenced for plotting to bomb a military recruiting center.

Antonio Martinez was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to 25 years in prison.

Martinez pleaded guilty in January. Prosecutors say he armed a fake bomb in a vehicle he parked in front of a Catonsville recruiting center in December 2010. They say he then went to a vantage point and used what he thought was a detonator when an undercover agent told him soldiers were in the building.

During Friday's sentencing, Martinez gave a lengthy statement to the judge renouncing terrorism.
