An Australian who pleaded guilty to supporting terrorism was sentenced Friday to nine months in prison after becoming the first detainee convicted by military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay. A panel of military officers recommended a sentence of sentence of seven years after two hours of deliberations, but a plea agreement that had been kept secret from the panel members capped Hicks' sentence at nine months. The United States had agreed to let Hicks serve his sentence in Australia, and he is to leave the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay within 60 days under the plea agreement.
