Headley, Rana sentencing rescheduled

A US court on Wednesday rescheduled the sentencing of Pakistani-American LeT terrorist David Headley, accused of involvement in 26/11 Mumbai attacks, from January 17 to January 24, while rescheduling the sentencing of his accomplice Tahawwur Rana for a second time to January 17. The sentencing was scheduled on January 15 for Rana and January 17 for Headley.

"Rana is now scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday January 17, 2013 and Headley is now scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday Jan 24, 2013," said a statement from the Chicago court spokesperson Randall Samborn.

Rana's sentencing was rescheduled for a second time after it was first postponed from December 4 to January 15. His plea for acquittal and retrial was dismissed in June last year after which December four was first fixed for his sentencing. Samborn said US District Judge Harry Leinenweber will announce the sentences for the two men.
