NC Jihadi Sentenced to 18 Years

After pleading guilty, he worked as a cooperating witness. So, I guess 18 years isn't bad:

The ringleader of a North Carolina terror cell was sentenced to 18 years in prison Friday in connection with a plot to wage violent jihad overseas.

Daniel Patrick Boyd pleaded guilty in February 2011 to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and plotting to murder, kidnap and maim people overseas. Between 1989 and 1992, Boyd received military-style training in terrorist camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan for the purpose of engaging in jihadi attacks. He also fought Soviet troops alongside the mujahideen in Afghanistan, court records show.
