GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba — A six-member U.S. military jury Thursday sentenced Osama bin Laden’s driver to 66 months in prison.
With credit extended by the judge for time already served, that likely means he will serve five months before being sent back to the normal population.
Jurors deliberated just 70 minutes after a sentencing hearing in which Salim Hamdan, 40, expressed regret and apologized for any pain his actions caused victims of al Qaeda.
