Secret plea bargain reduces life imprisonment to “time served” just like that. ..
U.S. Army veteran charged with conspiracy to help terrorists in Syria pleads to lesser count
“A U.S. Army veteran accused of fighting alongside a Syrian rebel group linked to al-Qaeda and charged with conspiracies that could have landed him in prison for life pleaded guilty Thursday to a less onerous count and was given a sentence of “time served,” court records show.”
“Harroun pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate arms control laws and prosecutors dropped the most serious charges, court records show.
It remains unclear what prompted the deal and whether the rapidly shifting political climate in Syria had an effect on the case. The plea agreement and statement of facts are both sealed.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Eastern District of Virginia, where the case is filed, declined to comment. Harroun’s defense attorney also declined to comment.”
I guess that puts another admitted terrorist back on the street. Good work, “justice” dept. Hope he doesn’t blow shit up here in America, where Obama’s “justice” dept is releasing him.
Can’t go around prosecuting people for giving material support to Al Nusra Terrorists when Obama himself just declared that law null and void on Sept. 16th.
You can’t write this shit. People would find it implausible in a fucking movie.
