Dr. Rafiq Abdus Sabir, 52, of Boca Raton, Florida, was convicted in Manhattan federal court after a three-week trial that featured testimony by him and an FBI agent who posed as an al-Qaida recruiter in a sting operation that led to four arrests.
The charges against the New York City-born Sabir carried a potential maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
