Man pleads guilty in Seattle terror plot
Thursday, December 6, 2012
SEATTLE — A Seattle man has pleaded guilty to plotting to attack a Seattle military office with machine guns and grenades.
The U.S. attorney's office in Seattle says 35-year-old Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif entered his pleas Thursday and agreed to a prison sentence between 17 and 19 years. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder U.S. officers and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.
Abdul-Latif, also known as Joseph Anthony Davis, was arrested in June 2011, along with an acquaintance from Los Angeles, when authorities set up a buy at a Seattle warehouse garage. Prosecutors say Abdul-Latif was there to pick up machine guns and grenades to use in the attack.
