A man from Uzbekistan pleads guilty in Alabama for his plot to kill President Barack Obama.

Ulugbek Kodirov entered a plea deal during a hearing in Federal court in Birmingham Friday.

The plea deal calls for him to serve up to 30 years in prison.

Federal authorities added a terror charge against him on Thursday.

Authorities say Kodirov was in the country illegally. Kodirov was issued a student visa to get into the U.S. but he never enrolled in school.
