A citizen of Phoenix, Arizona and a convert to Islam, Abujihaad has been convicted of disclosing the location of Navy ships and their weaknesses to an online forum in April 2001 while serving as a naval signalman on board the USS Benfold.
Police arrested him in March 2007. He pled not guilty on 4 April 2007. On 5 March 2008 Abujihaad was convicted by a jury. Federal prosecutors said the 32-year-old sympathized with the enemy and admitted disclosing military intelligence. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, the maximum penalty for his crime.
