An Iraqi man sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to terrorism charges has been assigned to a high-security facility in Indiana.
The federal Bureau of Prisons lists 32-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan as an inmate at United States Penitentiary-Terre Haute. The high security facility is 70 miles west of Indianapolis.
A co-defendant, 25-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, is serving life in prison at the United States Penitentiary-Big Sandy in Inez, Ky.
Hammadi and Alwan pleaded guilty in 2011 and 2012 to conspiring to ship thousands in cash, machine guns, rifles, grenades and shoulder-fired missiles to al-Qaida in Iraq. Prosecutors said the two were working with a confidential informant.
Both were arrested in May 2011 in Bowling Green after a federal sting operation.
