MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — A federal judge in Alabama has sentenced two men to 15 years in prison each for conspiring to support terrorists.

U.S. District Judge Kristi DuBose imposed the sentences Friday on 26-year-old Randy Lamar Wilson of Mobile and Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair, who’s originally from New York.

The men pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

Prosecutors say the two men met over the Internet and Abukhdair moved to Mobile, where Wilson lived. The two had become business partners before their arrests a year ago.

Federal prosecutors portrayed Wilson as an Islamic radical who wanted to reunite with Omar Hammami, an Alabama native who became a jihadi in Africa. Somali rivals killed Hammami in September.
