LUBBOCK (AP) - A federal judge has refused to grant a new trial to a former Texas Tech University student convicted in a failed bomb plot.

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari asked for a new trial in July, a month after his conviction in Lubbock of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Aldawsari accused prosecutors of misrepresenting his intentions for coming to America. Prosecutor Denise Williams accused Aldawsari in June of “marching down that road” to an attack since he was 11.

U.S. District Judge Donald Walter cited Aldawsari’s journals as evidence to dismiss his claim. Walter also denied Aldawsari’s other claims about supposed prosecution misstatements.

The 22-year-old Saudi native was arrested in February 2011.

Aldawsari faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced Oct. 9.
