A wannabe jihadist who planned to build a pressure cooker bomb to kill 'as many people as possible' in New York City in support of ISIS was sentenced to 16 years in federal prison on Friday.
Gregory Lepsky, 22, of Point Pleasant, New Jersey, said little during his hearing inside a Trenton federal courtroom, responding to U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp's questions with only 'yes' and 'no' answers, according to NJ.com.
Lepsky pleaded guilty on March 13, 2018 to attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
His plea agreement had called for a sentence of 16 to 19 years. The judge also sentenced him to a lifetime of supervised release when he's out.
He originally was arrested on February 21, 2017 for stabbing his family's dog.
