15 years for US man who wanted to bomb bank

This photo released by the San Jose Police Department via the San Jose Mercury News shows Matthew Aaron Llaneza, 28, after a 2011 arrest for weapons offenses. Llaneza, a California man with delusions of joining the Taliban, was sentenced Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 to 15 years in federal prison for trying to blow up a bank with a car bomb he thought would go off but was actually made up of inert materials supplied by the FBI. U.S. District Judge Virginia Gonzalez Rogers said she was satisfied that the sentence — spelled out in a plea deal between Llaneza and federal prosecutors — struck a balance between acknowledging the 29-year-old San Jose resident's mental condition and punishing him for actions.
