A 23-year-old U.S. man was convicted by a jury on terrorism-related charges Wednesday after a trial in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ehsanul Islam Sadequee, of the Atlanta suburb of Roswell, was found guilty of four counts of supporting terrorists and a foreign terrorist organization after a seven-day trial, said Patrick Crosby, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Atlanta.

In June, a judge convicted Sadequee's accused co-conspirator, Syed Haris Ahmed, of conspiring to provide material support to terrorism in the United States and abroad.

Sadequee, who is of Bangladeshi descent, had allegedly sought to join the Taliban and their fight against the U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan during his stay in Bangladesh in 2001.

Several years later, in late 2004 and 2005, Sadequee returned to the United States and "entered an illegal agreement -- a conspiracy -- with others to provide material support to terrorists engaged in violent jihad," the government said in a statement.

Ahmed and Sadequee were charged in the same indictment.

Authorities alleged the two traveled to Canada in March 2005 to meet with three other co-conspirators they met online.

Sadequee was arrested in April 2006 in Bangladesh and was brought back to Atlanta in August 2006.

Sentencing for both Ahmed and Sadequee is scheduled for Oct. 15and Sadequee could face a sentence of up to 60 years in prison.
