SEATTLE, Wash. (Metro) -- The so-called "Millennium Bomber" is scheduled to face re-sentencing today in Seattle, Washington.
Ahmed Ressam had been sentenced to 22-years in prison after a New Year's Eve 1999 plot to set off explosives at Los Angeles International Airport was thwarted.
However, A U.S. appeals court ruled his sentence was too lenient.
Federal prosecutors have asked for a sentence that will require the Algerian national to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
They say Ressam should receive the life-term because he reneged on a deal to assist in the prosecution of other suspected militants and later recanted his testimony and other statements to authorities.
