Terrorism conspirator Jose Padilla sentenced to 17 years and four months in jail

The accusations that he plotted to set off a radioactive "dirty bomb" are long gone, but Padilla was still convicted last summer of conspiring to support Islamic extremists around the world.
U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke, appointed by President Bush, had wide discretion in determining how much time the three men would spend behind bars.
There is no evidence that Padilla ever committed a terrorist act.
