ATLANTA – A second Georgia man has been sentenced for conspiring to support terrorist groups by videotaping U.S. landmarks and sending the videos overseas.
Syed Haris Ahmed was sentenced to 13 years in prison Monday for sending the tapes of U.S. landmarks to terror suspects overseas. The 24-year-old faced up to 15 years in prison after his June conviction.
Ahmed was also sentenced to 30 years supervised release.
Ahmed's friend Ehsanul Islam Sadequee was sentenced to 17 years in prison earlier Monday on stiffer charges. Prosecutors say Sadequee also tried to aid a Pakistani-based terror group while on a trip to Bangladesh.
Both Ahmed and Sadequee said they never considered following through on boasts they made online.
