Mobile terrorist pleads guilty

A terrorism suspect has pleaded guilty in federal court in Downtown Mobile.

Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair admitted that while living in Mobile he planned to join a violent jihadist movement in Africa.

His co-conspirator Randy "Rasheed" Wilson already pleaded guilty four months ago.

The two lived together in Mobile, and at one point, they planned to go to Africa to meet up with Daphne native Omar Hammami, who is now on the FBI's most wanted terrorist list.

According to the 21 page plea agreement, Abukhdair even considered a domestic terrorist attack that included taking hostages and getting in a shoot out with police.

The maximum penalty for the charge is 15 years, the U.S. Attorney's office will recommend that at his sentencing in December.
