Subway Plotter Adis Medunjanin Conviction And Life Sentence Upheld on Appeal

He didn't really mean to sign that paper waving his rights, I mean not really.

A Bosnian-born U.S. citizen on Tuesday failed to overturn his conviction for planning suicide bombings in the New York City subways at the behest of al Qaeda operatives.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld the conviction of Adis Medunjanin, who was sentenced to life in prison in 2012 after a jury found him guilty on charges that included conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism.

Lawyers for Medunjanin, 30, argued that a trial judge in Brooklyn, New York, erred in rejecting his request to suppress incriminating statements he made to law enforcement after his 2010 arrest.

Too bad there wasn't a deport to Somalia option, because it looks like Adios is getting more than his share of my tax dollars in the cafeteria line.
