A federal judge in Georgia has rejected a bid for a new trial by a man convicted of terrorism charges earlier this year. US District Judge William Duffey rejected Ehsanul Islam Sadequee's motion for a new trial this week. The move sets the stage for a Dec. 14 sentencing date for Sadequee and co-defendant Syed Haris Ahmed. Ahmed was found guilty in June of conspiring to support terrorist groups while Sadequee was convicted of sending videotapes of US landmarks overseas and plotting to support jihad.
