Illinois men sentenced to less than minimum for Minnesota mosque bombing

Michael McWhorter, 33, and Joe Morris, 26, were ordered to jail for 16 years and 14 years, respectively for helping carry out the attack on Dar al-Farooq Islamic Center while worshipers participated in morning prayers, according to court document

In September, Emily Claire Hari, the militia group leader formerly known as Michael Hari who was convicted of masterminding the pipe bombing on Aug. 5, 2017, received a 53-year sentence. McWhorter and Morris cooperated in that case, so Assistant U.S. Attorneys Allison Ethen and Timothy Rank asked for a judgment below the sentencing guidelines.

“The government recognizes and values McWhorter and Morris’s cooperation throughout this case, which contributed to Hari’s conviction,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said in a statement. “Today, justice under the law has been served for their actions.”
