Va. man gets 12 years for aiding terrorists
Va. man gets 12 years in prison for producing video for Pakistani terrorist organization
By The Associated Press

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) ' An electrician from northern Virginia who admitted producing an online propaganda video for a Pakistani terrorist organization has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

A federal judge in Alexandria imposed the sentence Friday for 24-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge. Ahmad pleaded guilty to providing material support to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani organization that was blamed for the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai that killed 166 people.

Prosecutors sought a maximum term of 15 years. They said that in addition to producing the propaganda video, Ahmad also received military training from Lashkar and professed a wish to die as a martyr.



Ahmad's lawyers had asked for only a two-year term. They say he did not appreciate the criminality of helping Lashkar, a group that has widespread support in his native Pakistan.
