[Posted at 04:07 a.m. ET] American David Headley is scheduled to be sentenced by a federal judge in Illinois today for his role in the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India.
Headley, 52, has admitted conducting advance surveillance for the attacks that killed 160 people.
Although he could receive life in prison, the Justice Department is recommending that a federal judge sentence him to 30 to 35 years because he cooperated with U.S. authorities after his arrest.FULL STORY
