A Pakistani immigrant, who attempted to set off a bomb in Times Square last May, was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday morning.
Faisal Shahzad, who plead guilty with no deals on June 21, remained defiant as the judge, Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum, put him away for life. According to LA Times, Shahzad continued to press his viewpoint with interruptions talking about the Koran and how the U.S. will be defeated.
On May 1 Shahzad's vehicle, loaded with powerful explosives, failed to go off in Times Square, and he was arrested two days later on a plane before it left for Dubai, the New York Times reported.
He cooperated with officials immediately.
