Massachusetts man to be sentenced on terror conspiracy charges

By Kristina Sgueglia

A Massachusetts man will be sentenced Thursday after his conviction on multiple terrorism conspiracy charges in a case that raised questions about how terror suspects can be prosecuted.

Tarek Mehanna, 29, was found guilty in December of conspiring to help al Qaeda, conspiring to commit murder in a foreign country and making false statements.

He could face up to life in prison.
