Chicago Businessman Sent To Prison For Helping Terrorist Group
A federal judge sentenced Tahawwur Rana on Thursday in Chicago. Jurors in 2011 convicted Rana of supporting a never-carried-out plot to attack a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad and for supporting the Pakistani group. They cleared him of any direct involvement in that group's attack on Mumbai.
The government's star witness was American Pakistani David Coleman Headley. He had pleaded guilty to laying the groundwork for the Mumbai attacks. He testified to avoid the death penalty and extradition.
