A former foot solider for the terrorist group al-Shabab has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Twenty-eight-year-old Kamal Said Hassan was given less than the maximum sentence of 38 years in federal court Monday. The judge cited Hassan’s cooperation with investigators. After his prison sentence, Hassan will be on supervised release for 20 years.

Hassan was one of more than 20 young men who left Minnesota in 2007 to join al-Shabab in Somalia.

Hassan admitted he trained with al-Shabab and participated in an ambush of Ethiopian troops before returning to the U.S.

He pleaded guilty in 2009 to two terror-related counts and one count of lying to the FBI.
