He was convicted of inciting terrorism in connection with the Virginia Jihad Network and was sentenced to life imprisonment.
The Virginia jihad network was a network of Muslim extremists centered in Northern Virginia that planned atrocities in the U.S. and abroad.
Nine members of the Virginia Jihad Network were convicted on charges related to their participation in a terrorist enterprise, including engaging in paramilitary training. Al-Tamimi had been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in that case.
