A high-value terror suspect held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has reached a plea agreement with military prosecutors in which he would plead guilty and agree to testify against other detainees in return for a reduced sentence, according to a source familiar with the case.
Majid Khan, 31, was charged earlier this month with conspiracy, murder and attempted murder in violation of the law of war, providing material support for terrorism and spying. He was scheduled to be arraigned on February 29. If convicted during a military commission he faced a maximum of life in prison.
The source familiar with the case said Khan would plead guilty to all charges under the terms of the agreement, but the source would not specify exactly how much time Khan would have to serve if the agreement is approved by a military judge.FULL STORY
