Mohamed was arrested when he was found to have a bomb capable of blowing up the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. He was assigned public defender, Sandra Bell, for his trial. The prosecution offered a plea deal for 15 years, but after speaking with Mohamed and considering the deal, Sandra asked for the discovery, meaning they'd take their chance going to trial. While going through the evidence, Sandra discovered that the other guys Mohamed had worked with were undercover FBI agents, meaning it was a sting operation designed to catch Mohamed in an act of terror. With that information, she argued his defense at trial, saying that the US had made a terrorist instead of catching one. In the end, however, the jury reached a guilty verdict.
