Headley, Rana to face sentence in January for role in 2008 Mumbai attacks
US-based Pakistani American, David Coleman Headley, who carried out surveillance ahead of the deadly 2008 Mumbai siege will be sentenced on January 17.
Headley, 52, formally admitted to 12 terror charges in March 2010 after prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty or to allow him to be extradited to India, Pakistan or Denmark to face related charges, reports The Express Tribune.
He could be sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.
The Mumbai attacks, which took place on November 26, 2008 left 166 people dead and is said to be the deadliest terror attack on Indian soil since independence.
America came under fire in India for reaching the deal with Headley, but prosecutors said it was well worth it given the valuable intelligence he provided in order to save his own skin.
Headley also testified against his childhood friend, Pakistan-born Chicago businessman Tahawwur Hussain Rana, who was convicted on two terrorism charges last year.
Rana, 51, faces up to 30 years in jail for helping the banned Pakistan militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) plan an attack on a Danish newspaper that sparked outrage by publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
However, a jury found there was insufficient evidence that Rana was involved in the Mumbai attacks, even though Headley described how he had used Rana's immigration services business as a cover while conducting surveillance in India's financial capital.
Rana will be sentenced on January 15.
Pakistani national Ajmal Kasab - the lone survivor of the terror squad responsible for the attacks- was hanged in India last week.
