Two New York Men sentenced in FBI Terror Sting

Yassin Aref & Mohammed Hossain Sentenced in FBI Terror Sting

Two different convictions, one sentence: the two Albany men found guilty of trying to buy a fake rocket launcher find out how long they will be behind bars. An Albany mosque leader, Aref, was convicted on 10 counts and sentenced to 15-years in federal prison. A pizza shop owner, Hossain, was convicted of 27 counts and faces 15-years as well.
