    Ulugbek Kodirov had faced up to 30 years in prison.

    \r\n

    Kodirov pleaded guilty in February to plotting to shoot Mr Obama as he campaigned for re-election.

    \r\n

    Kodirov said he came up with the plan after communicating online with a man he believed to be a member of an Uzbek Islamic group.

    \r\n

    Authorities in Birmingham, Alabama said Kodirov tried to buy a weapon, and the potential seller became a government informant.

    \r\n

    His defence lawyer argued that the 22-year-old Kodirov has accepted responsibility for his actions and is trying to straighten out his life.
