Terrorist cohort Jose Padilla was “tried in Miami and convicted on August 16, 2007, of terrorist conspiracy and of material support for terrorists. Padilla’s sentence of more than seventeen years in prison was less than the prosecution had sought, reflecting the judge’s concern about the harsh treatment Padilla had received while in confinement.”
