Former Mason student sentenced to prison

Zachary Adam Chesser, 21,  was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday. He pleads guilty to supporting a terrorist group that threatened the lives of writers on the TV show “South Park.”

Chesser was arrested last July as an alleged terrorist recruit after also being placed on a no-fly list. He attended Mason for one semester as a freshman in 2008.
