Man from Albany convicted on terrorism charges to be released from prison early
An Albany man convicted in an FBI sting operation to fund a terror plot, will be getting out of prison early.
The court will allow Mohammed Hossain to serve the remainder of his sentence at home because of several ongoing illness and diseases.
A motion filed on behalf of Hossain stated that he suffered from “chronic and debilitating illnesses decreasing his life expectancy, requiring constant testing, regulation of his diet, and medical monitoring” during his incarceration. Hossain suffers from Type 2 Diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, psoriasis, anemia and several other health issues.
Hossain will be moved to his home once transportation can be arranged, according to a second court document.
A jury convicted Hossain on 27 counts for his role in a plan to harm the Ambassador of Pakistan in New York City with a surface-to-air missile.
