A Manhattan man was sentenced to 16 years behind bars Tuesday in connection with a plot to set off pipe bombs in the city.
Jose Pimentel, 29, was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision during his court appearance in Lower Manhattan.
He pleaded guilty last month.
The sentence was part of a plea deal.
If the case had gone to trial he could have gotten 15 years to life.
Prosecutors said Pimentel, a so-called "lone wolf" terror suspect, wanted to avenge the death of an American-born Muslim cleric killed by a U.S. drone.
He was arrested in November of 2011 before he was able to make any actual bombs.
