MIAMI (AP) — Convicted terrorism plotter Jose Padilla will be back in Miami in December to receive a new prison sentence after an appeals court said he deserves more time behind bars.
U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke on Wednesday set a Dec. 3 sentencing date. Padilla could get life in prison.
The 41-year-old Padilla was sentenced to 17 years in prison after he and two others were convicted in 2007 of several terrorism-related charges. He’s currently scheduled for release in January 2022 with time off for good behavior.
The appeals court ruled Padilla deserves a longer sentence because he trained to kill at an al-Qaida camp in Afghanistan and had a long criminal record previously.
Padilla is currently being held at the Supermax federal prison in Florence, Colo.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
