Sentencing Reset For Arizona Man Convicted Of Lying In Terror Probe


Sentencing has been postponed for a witness in the investigation of the 2015 attack on a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in suburban Dallas who was convicted of making false statements to FBI agents and tampering with a witness.

Abdul Khabir Wahid was in court Tuesday to be sentenced, but his sentencing date was moved to January 28 to give him time to discuss a legal issue with an attorney who is advising him.

Wahid wasn’t accused of being directly involved in the attack launched by two friends who were killed in a police shootout outside the anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas.
