A Mexican immigrant who was a driver for a prostitution ring that forced young women to have sex with up to 20 customers a day in the New York City area was sentenced on Thursday to four years in prison.
An Egyptian Islamic preacher's statements that "everybody was happy" when the World Trade Center was hit by airplanes can be heard by a jury sitting just blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 attacks, a judge ruled Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest told Garcia-De La Rosa on Thursday that though he had a lesser role in the scheme, it was vital to keeping it alive.
Forrest said Mustafa's British television interview also included a defense of the 2000 suicide bombing of the USS Cole in Aden harbor in Yemen, where 17 American sailors were killed.
