TOLEDO — A Toledo man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his part in a terrorist plot intending to target American soldiers.
Mohammad Amawi was sentenced Wednesday morning in federal court. He had faced up to life in prison. He is one of three defendants who were found guilty last year of plotting to recruit and train terrorists to kill U.S. troops in Iraq.
Another defendant, Marwan El-Hindi will begin his sentencing Wednesday. Wassim Mazloum was also found guilty of the terrorist plot.
U.S. District Judge James Carr told the courtroom that an undercover FBI informant was a key part in bringing the men to justice.
