A Manhattan judge has upheld the convictions of four men sentenced to decades in prison for a terrorist plot.

James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen were arrested in 2009 and charged with plotting to blow up two synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military cargo planes upstate.

The defense has long claimed they were a harmless group led astray by an FBI informant, but the judge ruled that the government's tactics didn't rise to the level of "outrageous behavior."

Each man was convicted of conspiracy and sentenced to 25 years in prison.
