Feds set sentencing date for Iraqi man in Arizona gun case
PHOENIX -- A new sentencing date has been set for a man who was convicted in federal court of being a felon in possession of guns and ammunition.
Iraqi-born Abdullatif Ali Aldosary is set to be sentenced Feb. 24 for the firearms convictions.
He faces up to 10 years in prison for each of the three counts.
Aldosary is also charged in state court with detonating a homemade explosive device outside an Arizona Social Security building in November 2012. No one was injured.
Federal authorities said Aldosary had a previous felony conviction and therefore wasn't allowed to own firearms or ammunition.
The federal firearms charges stemmed from evidence collected during searches of his home after the explosive was detonated.
