Hassan Abujihaad

Hassan Abu-Jihaad (born Paul R. Hall in 1976) is a former sailor in the United States Navy convicted of supporting terrorism.

A citizen of Phoenix, Arizona[1][2] and a convert to Islam, Abujihaad has been convicted of disclosing the location of Navy ships and their weaknesses to an online forum in April 2001 while serving as a naval signalman on board the USS Benfold.[1]

Police arrested him in March 2007. He pled not guilty on 4 April 2007. On 5 March 2008 Abujihaad was convicted by a jury. Federal prosecutors said the 32-year-old sympathized with the enemy and admitted disclosing military intelligence.[2] He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, the maximum penalty for his crime.[3]

The Sunday Mercury reports Abu-Jihaad's first link to terrorism at the Maktabah Al Ansar bookstore in Sparkhill, Birmingham, England.[4]
