Mike Hawash Pleads Guilty

Posted by Mike on August 6, 2003 10:04 PM

Tip o' the hat to Cristina, who noticed Maher "Mike" Hawash has plead guilty:

"A former Intel software designer charged this spring for plotting with six others to fight against U.S. troops in Afghanistan pleaded guilty today to providing material support and services to the Taliban government.

Maher 'Mike' Hawash's deal with the government allows him to avoid what could have amounted to a life sentence in exchange for becoming a chief witness against his alleged co-conspirators. The deal calls for a 7- to 10-year federal prison term, which will be determined by a federal judge after the trial of the others."
