The former head of a now defunct Islamic charity will serve 33 months in prison for smuggling money to Saudi Arabia.
At Tuesday's sentencing, U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan said there was no direct proof linking Pete Seda to terrorism.
However, he added that he has no doubt that the $150,000 in smuggled funds eventually wound up in the hands of Islamic militants.
Last year, a court convicted Seda of tax fraud and conspiracy. The Iranian-born U.S. citizen ran the U.S. chapter of the al-Haramain Islamic Foundation based in Ashland, Ore.
Acting U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton said he was satisfied with the judge's ruling.
"Money is the lifeblood of terrorist organizations," Holton said. "We are working very hard to cut off that lifeline. Shutting down al-Haramain internationally and here was an essential part of that."
