A US federal judge sentenced an Uzbek man to more than 15 years in prison on Friday on terror and weapons charges for threatening to kill US President Barack Obama, US prosecutors said.
Ulugbek Kodirov, 22, was sentenced to 15 years and eight months in prison for providing material support to terrorism, threatening to kill the president and possession of a firearm by an illegal alien, they said in a statement.
Kodirov, who entered the United States on a valid visa but later was in the country illegally, will be deported to Uzbekistan after he completes the sentence, the statement said.
