Former U.S. Soldier Naser Abdo's Appeal Rejected by Federal Court

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A federal court has rejected an appeal from a former U.S. soldier who plotted to kill Fort Hood troops.

Yesterday the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans rejected Naser Jason Abdo's three points of appeal from his May 2012 trial in Waco.

Abdo was convicted of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempted murder of U.S. officers or employees and four counts of possession of weapons.

Abdo was sentenced to two consecutive life prison terms plus a total of 80-years on the weapons charges.

At his sentencing hearing, Abdo lamented that he didn't get as far as Hasan but said he would not ask the court for mercy because Allah is the one who gives mercy.
