Would-be Dallas bomber appealing 24-year sentence

The Miami Herald reports on Friday, October 29, 2010, in an article entitled "Would-be Dallas bomber appealing 24-year sentence," that Hosam Smadi, a Jordanian man, sentenced to 24 years in prison for pleading guilty to blowing up a Dallas skyscraper, is appealing his sentence.

Smadi was convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, a charge that without a plea bargain carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. He was arrested last year after leaving what he believed to be a truck bomb in a garage beneath the 60 story building.

Smadi brings this matter pro se in filing his appeal Thursday and the one page document he filed offered no details for the grounds of this appeal. For the full text of the article, click here
