Portland Terror Case Sentencing
September 4, 2013, 1:42 am
Sentencing for the Portland terror case has been postponed.
A federal judge granted the prosecutors request for a new date to sentence Mohamed Mohamud. He was convicted in January for trying to blow up Portland's Christmas tree-lighting ceremony back in 2010.
Originally Mohamud was to be sentenced Friday. But in an unusual twist the prosecution filed for the postponement under seal.
Now a federal judge has set the sentencing hearing for the morning of December 18th. The reason for the change has not been made public.
