Man Who Gave Money To Terror Plotter Sentenced To Three Years' Probation

  • Text size: + -

The man who admitted to illegally transferring money to fund the attempted Times Square bombing was sentenced to three years' probation in federal court today.

Mohammad Younis pleaded guilty in August to giving Faisal Shahzad $7,000 from Pakistan through an illegal money transfer business.

Weeks after Younis gave him the money, Shahzad tried to explode a car bomb in the middle of Times Square last year.

Shahzad was caught fleeing the country, later pleaded guilty and is now serving life in prison.

Younis was also fined $2,000 and must forfeit $12,000.
