[JURIST] Youssef Hmimssa [Detroit News profile], a Moroccan man whose testimony was at the center of a terrorism trial that later unraveled, was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison on Thursday on charges of credit card fraud and visa misuse. Hmimssa was in the US illegally and has lived in five countries under as many as a dozen names. He received almost four years credit for time served and will likely be deported after his release. Previously, he was a key prosecution witness in the trial of four suspects on terrorism charges. Convictions resulting from the case were eventually overturned [JURIST report] after the Department of Justice admitted to "patterns of mistakes and oversights" [JURIST report] during the proceedings.
