An Illinois man pleaded guilty Wednesday to plotting to use hand grenades to attack holiday shoppers at a mall. Derrick Shareef, 23, drew national attention when he was arrested in December 2006 on charges of scheming to use weapons of mass destruction against the Cherryvale Mall. He was arrested after meeting an undercover FBI agent in a parking lot and agreeing to trade his stereo speakers for four grenades and a gun. Shareef faces at least 30 years in prison and could be sentenced to life in prison when sentenced March 14.
