Man Convicted In Dallas Bomb Plot Withdraws Appeal

The man convicted of trying to blow up a Dallas skyscraper has withdrawn his appeal.

The 20-year-old Jordanian man filed a motion to withdraw his appeal on his 24 year prison sentence in Dallas Tuesday.

The new motion says Hosam Smadi consulted with his lawyers and no longer believes it's in his best interest to pursue an appeal.

Smadi pleaded guilty in May to attempted use of weapon of mass destruction.
