Mutasser A Libyan Native Living In Braintree

WORCESTER, Mass. -- The founder of a defunct Muslim charity has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for lying to an FBI agent about his travels to Afghanistan.

Emadeddin Muntasser was also ordered in federal court on Thursday to pay a $10,000 fine.

Muntasser, 43, a Libyan native who lives in Braintree, was one of three men convicted in January of conspiracy to dupe the U.S. government into awarding their Boston-based organization, Care International Inc., tax-exempt status by hiding its pro-jihad activities.
But a judge last month overturned the most serious convictions against Muntasser saying the government failed to prove them.

Muntasser's sentence was double the federal guideline, but less than the five years prosecutors requested.
