Sacramento, CA — Tuesday a federal jury convicted a 23-year-old Lodi man of supporting terrorists by attending an al-Qaida training camp in Pakistan three years ago.
Hamid Hayat, a seasonal produce worker in Lodi, was convicted of one count of providing material support to terrorists by attending the camp and three counts of lying about it to F-B-I agents.
That verdict came hours after a separate jury hearing a case against the man´s father deadlocked, forcing U-S District Court Judge Garland Burrell, Jr. to declare a mistrial.
Both men are U-S citizens and stood trial in U-S District Court before separate juries. They have been in custody since their arrests last June.
