Amarillo, TX - A federal judge has denied a request for new trial for the Saudi man convicted for planning a terrorist attack in Texas.

According to court records Judge Donald Walter denied Khalid Aldawsari's requests for an acquittal and for a new trial.

Aldawsari was found guilty by a federal jury in Amarillo in June for attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The judge says the government presented sufficient evidence to prove the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
