Mohamad Youssef Hammoud, 37, was resentenced Thursday, Jan. 27, to 30 years in prison on charges related to his activities of providing material support to the foreign terrorist organization, Hezbollah, from about 1995 to July 2000 in Charlotte, N.C. The announcement was made by Anne M. Tompkins, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina.
