  • News Alert: NYC bomber case

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Mon Oct 16 11:01:14 2017
    A jury found Ahmad Rahimi guilty[1] of eight federal charges Monday in connection with a September 2016 bombing that wounded 30 people in New York.

    After a two-week trial and roughly four hours of jury deliberation, Rahimi was convicted of charges including the use and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, bombing a public place, destroying property by means of fire or explosives, and using a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence -- namely, the use and attempted use of weapons of mass destruction. Rahimi faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison, according to a statement from acting US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Joon H. Kim.

    Rahimi was arrested and charged after a pressure cooker bomb went off in New York's Chelsea neighborhood the night of September 17 last year. A second pressure cooker bomb was found a few blocks away, on 27th Street, but didn't detonate.
