Gitmo Detainee Pleads Guilty

A detainee at Guantanamo Bay, who was only 15 when he was first arrested, has pled guilty to terrorism charges against him. The detainee was accused of killing a medic with a grenade—a charge that he has denied. 

The terms of his guilty plea are confidential and he is likely to stay at the facility for at least another year before being returned to Canada. Had he chosen to proceed to trial, prosecutors likely would have sought a sentence of life in prison.
