Mohamed Mohamud Found Guilty

PORTLAND, Ore. —  Multiple Portland news affiliates report Mohamed Mohamud has been found guilty of attempting to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in 2010 in Portland.

The 21-year-old’s defense argued during trial that Mohamud is conflicted and immature, and was influenced by undercover FBI agents who posed as Al-Qaeda operatives.

Prosecutors noted Mohammed never hesitated, even when given the chance to disband the plot. They argued the decision had been made long before the government got involved.
