BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - A man from Uzbekistan living illegally in the United States pleaded guilty on Friday to terrorism and weapons charges involving threats to kill US President Barack Obama.

Defendant Ulugbek Kodirov, 22, pleaded guilty in US District Court in Birmingham, Alabama, to three charges as part of an agreement that spares him from a potential life sentence.

Kodirov is to be sentenced on May 17 and still faced up to 15 years in prison for providing material support for terrorist activity, up to 10 years for being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and up to five years for threatening to assassinate the president.
