Al Qaeda

[EDVA] Former head of American Muslim Council sentenced to 23 years in prison for illegal financial dealings with Libya. Alamoudi also confessed to taking part in a Libyan plot to assassinate the then Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. In an October 2008 ruling an appeals court granted Virginia-based federal prosecutor, Gordon Kromberg, the right to seize a Fairfax, VA home as part of the government's punishment of Alamoudi. A federal judge reduced Alamoudi's sentence by six years in July 2011.
