Teen in 'Jihad Jane' case to be sentenced on U.S. terror charges

Yahoo! National News - 5 hours 2 min ago
By Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Thursday is set to decide the prison sentence for Mohammad Hassan Khalid, a Pakistani immigrant high school student who pleaded guilty to providing assistance to al Qaeda. Khalid, now 20, is the youngest person ever charged with terrorism-related crimes in the United States. The woman, a suburban Philadelphia housewife whose real name is Colleen LaRose, in January was sentenced to 10 years in prison for planning to murder artist Lars Vilks, who had depicted the head of the Muslim Prophet Mohammad on a dog. Khalid, who pleaded guilty to committing related crimes when he was as young as 15 and living in his parents' apartment in suburban Maryland, could have faced up to 15 years in prison but prosecutors have asked for a shorter sentence because he cooperated after his arrest.
