Fareed Mumuni is a 25-year-old U.S.-born citizen, who was sentenced in April 2018 after pleading guilty to charges that he planned to aid the extremist organization and tried to kill the agent who was searching his Staten Island home.
Mumuni attacked the agent with a knife, prosecutors said, but the agent’s body armor protected him.
The appeals court said the sentencing judge appeared to second-guess whether Mumuni actually intended in June 2015 to kill FBI agent Kevin Coughlin with an 8-inch knife, even though he said he did.
A 17-year sentence for a New York City man who sought to aid the Islamic State group by trying to kill an FBI agent is “shockingly low,” a federal appeals court said as it ordered a judge to re-sentence him.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ordered a new outcome in Brooklyn federal court for Fareed Mumuni, saying sentencing guidelines that recommended an 85-year prison term for him reflect the judgment by Congress that “terrorism is different from other crimes.”
In a partial dissent, one of the three judges on the appeal panel said it would be fine if Mumuni received the same sentence again if the judge better explained the reasoning behind it.
