NYC accountant sentenced to 18 years in prison for supporting al-Qaida with money, supplies

A successful New York accountant who admitted supporting al-Qaida with money and supplies has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Sabirhan Hasanoff (suh-BEHR'-han HAHS'-an-awf) was sentenced Monday in federal court.

The sentence is two years less than the maximum he faced after pleading guilty to supporting al-Qaida. The judge says it was necessary to send a deterrent message to others who might embrace violent Islamic ideology.

Hasanoff has apologized for supporting al-Qaida from 2007 to 2010, saying he was wrong.

Prosecutors had portrayed Hasanoff as a new sophisticated breed of homegrown terrorist.

The 37-year-old Hasanoff is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. He lived in Brooklyn with his two children, graduated from Baruch College in Manhattan and had worked as a senior manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
