A Pakistani-born U.S. citizen who tried to set off a car bomb in New York’s busy Times Square was sentenced on Tuesday to life in prison.

Faisal Shahzad, 31, pleaded guilty in June to a failed May 1 bombing in Midtown Manhattan. He admitted to investigators he received bomb-making training from the Pakistani Taliban — called Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan — and that the group had funded the bomb plot.

He was sentenced on Tuesday morning in Manhattan federal court by U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum to life with no chance for parole.
