'Millennium bomber' sentence overturned
US appeals court vacates 22-year sentence of "millennium bomber" Ahmed Ressam as too lenient
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A federal appeals court has overturned the 22-year sentence for convicted "millennium bomber" Ahmed Ressam, calling it unreasonably lenient.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal ruled 7-4 in favor of the government's appeal in a decision released Monday.

Ressam was arrested in Washington state in 1999 on his way to bomb Los Angeles International Airport. He was convicted of nine criminal counts.



The government argued that sentencing guidelines called for 65 years to life. The 22-year sentence was twice imposed by a federal judge.
