Faisal Shahzad, the suspect in the May 1, 2010 terrorist bombing attempt in New York’s Times Square, plead guilty to all 10 counts he was facing. In a case of domestic terrorism, Shahzad attempted to set off a vehicle bomb on a busy Times Square street. The vehicle bomb failed to go off, and Shahzad was arrested 2 days later at New York’s JFK International Airport as he attempted to leave the county. The terrorism news became a top news item for the month of May.

Shahzad was arrested after a massive police investigation and subsequent man hunt. Shahzad claimed that he traveled to Pakistan with two friends to join the Taliban. The Justice Department reported that Shahzad received explosives training in Pakistan from a militant extremist group.

It has been indicated that prosecutors will ask for the maximum sentence on the charges. Sentencing is scheduled for October 5. Of the 10 charges Shahzad plead guilty to, 6 carry a maximum sentence of life.
