Update: Former US Marine in terrorism sting case gets 12 years


by Paula McMahonContact Reporter

Sun Sentinel


Former U.S. Marine and sculptor, Gregory Hubbard, 54, was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison on Wednesday.

Hubbard pleaded guilty earlier this year to being part of a conspiracy to help the terrorist group ISIS.

Investigators said Hubbard was the ringleader. He was arrested in 2016 at Miami’s airport as he planned to travel to Syria to fight with the terrorist organization.

Dayne Antani Christian, 33, of Lake Park, who pleaded guilty to related charges was sentenced to eight years in federal prison.

Christian cooperated with investigators after his arrest and U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg sentenced him to two years less than prosecutors recommended.

Earlier story

Three Palm Beach County men are facing federal prison when they are sentenced today for their roles in a controversial FBI terrorism sting.

The case developed a “wobbly wheel,” one of the defense attorneys said, when it became public that the main undercover informant in the operation, Mohammed Agbareia, had defrauded more than $300,000 from victims — while he was working undercover for the FBI and deeply involved in the terrorism sting.

Though the case ran into problems last year, all three defendants pleaded guilty. Prosecutors are recommending they serve prison terms of eight, 10 and 12 years respectively based on their individual levels of culpability.
