Prosecutors seek 15-year sentence in Armstrong County man's terrorism case
An Armstrong County man who pleaded guilty to soliciting terrorist acts on a pro-jihad website and carrying a firearm during a scuffle with federal agents should be sentenced to the 15 years agreed to in his plea bargain, federal prosecutors said in partially redacted court documents filed Tuesday.
Emerson Begolly, 24, of Redbank faces a maximum sentence of 10 years on the terrorism charge and five years on the gun charge, which has to be consecutive to any other sentence, Assistant U.S. Attorney James Kitchen said in a sentencing memorandum.
U.S. District Judge Maurice Cohill should give Begolly that maximum when he sentences him on July 16, Kitchen said in the memorandum.
