Seaside Bomber Sentenced To Life

New Jersey man sentenced to life in prison for planting bombs including one that injured more than 30 people

New York bombing defendant Ahmad Khan Rahimi is brought into court in Elizabeth N.J. in 2016

A year earlier, in September 2016, Rahimi transported two improvised pressure-cooker bombs - similar to those used in the Boston marathon bombing in April 2013 - from New Jersey to NY, placing both in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, authorities said.

Ahmad Khan Rahimi was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for carrying out a series of 2016 bombings that, while nonfatal, caused panic in NY and New Jersey.

Ahmad Khan Rahimi, also known as the "Chelsea bomber", set off the devices in Manhattan.

Rahimi also detonated a bomb at a charity 5K race in Seaside Park, N.J., earlier that morning - but no one was hurt.

"We intend to appeal", Rahimi's attorney, Xavier Donaldson, said outside of the courthouse here, after the hearing.

Two days after the bombs went off, police ended a manhunt for Rahimi with a shootout in Linden, New Jersey.

He placed another bomb several blocks away. "My father went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on multiple occasions".

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman in Manhattan said it was hard to reconcile the "reasonable enough" man he saw in court with the terrorist who tried to kill as many people as he could when he left his home early the morning of September 17, 2016, with two pressure-cooker explosives and a bag full of smaller bombs. The bomb left along the Seaside Park boardwalk was a pipe bomb stuffed in a trash can; the NY bombs were "pressure cooker" style devices. "You sit down and laugh", Nelson, 48, said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Crowley immediately followed Rahimi, saying he had just "blamed everyone else" after causing so much destruction through crimes "fueled by hate". On Sept. 17, 2016, Rahimi traveled to Manhattan from his home in Elizabeth, New Jersey, pulling suitcases on rollers with each hand.

In late 2017, federal prosecutors said Rahimi provided inmates with copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials, including speeches by Osama bin Laden and militant cleric Anwar al-Awlaki - both of whom were killed in 2011- along with bomb-making instructions, books on jihad, and issues of the al Qaeda-backed magazine Inspire, prosecutors said.

NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill noted in a statement that Rahimi's sentencing should deter future acts of terror.
