The Justice Department has agreed not to seek the death penalty for a Chicago man as part of his guilty plea in connection with the the Mumbai, India attacks in 2008, the Chicago U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

David Coleman Headley, 49, a U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, pleaded guilty Thursday in Chicago and admitted scouting targets in preparation for the Mumbai attack that killed about 170 people. Six were Americans.

Headley admitted attending training camps in Pakistan operated by a terrorist organization Lashkar e Tayyiba and he traveled to India five times before the bombings to conduct surveillance. (Read Plea Agreement)

Authorities said Headley has been cooperating since his Oct. 3, 2009 arrest, and “has provided substantial assistance to the criminal investigation, and also has provided information of significant intelligence value,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Because of his past cooperation, and his cooperation in the future, the Attorney General authorized the U.S. Attorney in Chicago not to seek the death penalty, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Headly had  also admitted to planning an attack on a Danish newspaper that published cartoons offensive to Islam.
