A Miami man is being sentenced to 6 years in prison for plotting to bomb the Chicago Sears Tower, according to CBS News.
Prosecutors originally were sentencing Burson Augustin, 23, to 30 years in prison but Joan Lenard, a US district judge, gave him a lighter sentence, according to BBC News.
CBS reported, Augustin had also allegedly been a supporter of al-Qaeda.
Islamic terrorism is one of the most tremendous problems that this country now confronts... and this defendant took an oath to al-Qaeda," the judge said.
Four other men were also involved in the plot to bomb the Sears Tower and other FBI buildings, according to CBS.
CBS reported, the ringleader, Narseal Batiste, could face up to 70 years in prison and the others between 30 and 50 years.
BBC reported that the Sears Tower has since been re-named to Willis Tower.
