Man Charged In Plot To Blow-up Dallas Skyscraper Charged

The 20-year-old man charged in the plot to blow up a Dallas skyscraper is expected to be sentenced Monday morning.

Hosam Smadi's sentencing will be in a Federal Court just blocks from the 60-story office tower he had targeted.

The Jordanian man pleaded guilty in May to attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

If his plea is accepted, Smadi will face 30 years in prison and then deportation.
