Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on the Sentencing of Ahmad Khan Rahimi


"With the sentencing of Ahmad Khan Rahimi to multiple terms of life in prison, justice has been served. The sentencing will not heal the pain and suffering that this despicable act caused New Yorkers, but it sends a strong message that we will not tolerate those who seek to sow fear, hate and violence.

"I commend New York's law enforcement community for diligently investigating and pursuing this case, and I want to once again recognize the first responders whose courage and professionalism that horrific night helped save lives and bring this terrorist to justice."
