    Jose Pimentel appears in a courtroom in New York, Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014. Pimentel, accused of building homemade bombs to wage holy war in New York City, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a terrorism charge less than a week before his scheduled trial in a rare state-level terrorism case. With the plea, Pimentel, 29, was promised a sentence of 16 years in prison. He would have faced a minimum of 15 years to life if convicted of the top charge, a high-level weapons possession offense as a terrorism crime. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, Pool)
