Both Raed Jaser and Chiheb Esseghaier have been found guilty of conspiring to commit murder in connection with a terrorist group and two counts of participating in or contributing to the activity of a terrorist group.

The jury also convicted Esseghaier of conspiring to damage transportation property with the intent to endanger safety — but jurors were deadlocked on the same charge for Jaser.

The sentencing hearing begins April 10th.
