A pair of Iraqi nationals who pleaded guilty to conspiring to send weapons, cash and explosives to al-Qaida in Iraq will be sentenced together in December.
U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell has delayed the sentencing of 30-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan from Oct. 2 to Dec. 5 in federal court in Bowling Green. The new date puts sentencing at the same time as Alwan's co-defendant, 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, who bypassed a trial and entered a guilty plea in August.
Alwan enters pleaded guilty in December 2011.
The two men faced charges of trying to send a variety of weapons, including rifles, rocket propelled grenades and Stinger missile systems, along with other explosives and cash to the terrorist organization in Iraq.
