U.S. District Judge Donald Walter ordered on Tuesday that sentencing for Lubbock terror suspect Khalid Aldawsari will be rescheduled for November 13 in Amarillo. It was originally set for October. Then Walter ordered it to be held on September 11 if possible. No reason for this newest sentencing date was given Tuesday in court records.
Aldawsari is convicted by a jury in Amarillo of Attempted Use of a Weapon of Mass Destruction. Prosecutors say Aldawsari was collecting the material for a bomb in his Central Lubbock apartment. He had proposed targets nationwide.
Aldawsari, a citizen of Saudi Arabia, was in Lubbock as a college student at the time of his arrest in February of 2011. He faces "any number of years" in prison according to federal law. He remains locked up until sentencing.
