MIAMI (AP) — Convicted terrorism plotter Jose Padilla has won a delay in his scheduled resentencing hearing to allow time for family members to visit him. His attorney says the visits may improve his mental health.
U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke delayed resentencing from next week to Jan. 29. Padilla attorney Michael Caruso says the 42-year-old Padilla's psychological condition has deteriorated since his original 2008 sentencing.
An appeals court rejected Padilla's current 17-year prison sentence as too lenient, ordering Cooke to impose a longer sentence.
Padilla and two others were convicted of conspiracy and terrorism support charges involving al-Qaida.
Padilla was held in a Navy brig without charges over three years as an enemy combatant, for which the judge gave him credit.
