Ressam sentence reinstated

Ressam sentence reinstated, Seattle P-I, Dec. 4, 2008. Federal prosecutors asked Judge John Coughenour (W.D. Wash.) to increase convicted terrorist Ahmed Ressam's sentence from 22 years to life. His sentence had reflected his early cooperation with investigators but he has stopped cooperating. Judge Coughenour stuck with the original sentence, but U.S. Attorney Jeff Sullivan hopes to appeal that decision.
