Man pleads guilty in Seattle terror plot

Dec 8, 2011

One of two men charged with planning to attack a Seattle military recruiting station last summer has pleaded guilty in federal court.

Walli Mujahidh pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy to kill officers of the United States, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and unlawful possession of a firearm. He faces up to 32 years in prison.

His attorney says he has serious mental health issues. He has been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder with bipolar tendencies.

The 32-year-old Los Angeles man was arrested in June along with Khalid Abdul-Latif of Seattle in an FBI sting. Federal prosecutors say the men were taken into custody when they arrived at a warehouse garage to pick up machine guns to use in the attack.
