charges that he sent money and provided long distance support to Tunisian jihadists believed responsible for a 2009 suicide attack in Iraq that killed five American soldiers. The deal could spare him a term of life behind bars.
Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa entered the plea in federal court in Brooklyn for a murder conspiracy charge that carried a maximum life sentence. He instead faces a 26 year prison term followed by deportation as part of the deal that a judge still must sign off on. Attorney Peter Baldwin told the judge that prosecutors met in person with the families of each of the victims before agreeing to a sentence the government believes “will serve to punish (the defendant) and deter others, while also requiring the defendant to admit his participation in these heinous acts.”
Defense attorney Mildred Whalen said in a statement: “We are mindful of how difficult this case is for so many, but think that the proposed plea agreement would be an appropriate resolution of the case.”
During the interview, Muhammad ‘Isa admitted he corresponded by email with two of the jihadists while they were in Syria, and that they were on a mission to kill Americans, the paperwork said. The documents allege he corresponded with “facilitators” who were trying to get the attackers into Iraq, and wired one of them $700.
