Man in New York synagogue bomb plot gets 25 years

| September 7, 2011

(Reuters) – A man who stood watch while two of his co-conspirators planted what they thought were bombs outside New York City synagogues in 2009 was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Wednesday.

Laguerre Payen, 29, a Haitian citizen, was convicted in October along with three others following a trial in Manhattan federal court.

The three other defendants were each sentenced to the mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison in June. Payen was sentenced separately because his attorney, Samuel Braverman, had requested he be evaluated for mental health issues.

Braverman also had argued his client deserved less than the mandatory 25-year minimum sentence because he had played a minor role in the plot.
