Chelsea bomber Ahmad Rahimi was sentenced Tuesday to multiple life terms for setting off a shrapnel-packed explosive as part of a wave of planned attacks in NY and New Jersey.

Following a three-hour hearing in Manhattan, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman said he found no compelling argument for to vary from sentencing guidelines on the eight counts of which 30-year-old Rahimi was convicted of in October 2017.

Berman approved restitution to victims at the sum of $562,803 as proposed by the government.

Inspired by the Daesh and Al-Qaeda terrorist groups, Rahimi planted and detonated several bombs in the USA states of New York and New Jersey, including a pressure cooker device that exploded in the New York City neighborhood of Chelsea, wounding 30 people. A second bomb in New Jersey that he had placed alongside a Marine Corps road race failed to detonate.

Pauline Nelson, a mother of four who was driving near the bomb when it went off, shot Rahimi daggers as she railed against his courtroom demeanor. No police were injured.

Rahimi said repeatedly during a 12-minute standing address to the court that he didn't harbor any hatred, but that his growing adherence to Islam caused him to face more harassment from Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at airports after returning to the USA from travel to the Dominican Republic, Manchester and Pakistan.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Crowley immediately followed Rahimi, saying he had just "blamed everyone else" after causing so much destruction through crimes "fueled by hate".

"(Another inmate) asked me how are we going to watch the news and I told him I don't need to watch the news because I am the news", Rahimi allegedly told a family member in a jailhouse phone call, while he was on trial.

While in prison, Rahimi showed no remorse for what he did and tried to radicalize other prisoners, according to federal prosecutors. Rahimi shared bomb-making instructions and speeches by terrorist leaders like Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki.

Defense attorney Xavier Donaldson said that Rahami had once aspired to be a police officer and worked as a security guard after studying criminal justice at a community college.

He urged a sentence not based on what people think terrorists might inspire or the fear they may cause. She was hospitalized when the auto she was driving was jolted by the explosion.
