SACRAMENTO, Calif . – A man who told undercover agents that he wanted to carry out a Christmas Day bombing and shooting attack at a popular San Francisco tourist attraction will receive a 15 - year sentence after pleading guilty Monday in a federal case.

Prosecutors are dropping a second charge of distributing bomb-making information under the plea agreement.

He told the undercover agents how to build pipe bombs and where he intended to assemble the bombs, and he asked them for remote timers, according to court documents.

Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and Jameson didn't want to take the chance of receiving a 40-year sentence, defense attorney Charles Lee said.

Lee said his client was having second thoughts and didn't actually take steps to carry out the plot. Investigators found no bomb-making materials, and three firearms found during a search were legally owned by his stepfather and were locked in a gun case where Jameson couldn't to get them, Lee said.

A Teen Girl Was Found Guilty of Plotting a Terrorist Attack in London

  A Teen Girl Was Found Guilty of Plotting a Terrorist Attack in London An 18-year-old girl has been found guilty of planning, alongside her mother and sister, an attack on the British Museum in London, in what is being called the U.K.’s first all-female, ISIS-related terrorist plot. Safaa Boular, from Vauxhall, south London, was detained by police for her attempt to join her partner Naweed Hussain, an ISIS recruiter, in Syria, where the pair planned to carry out a suicide attack, according to the prosecutor in Boular’s trial. The pair had met online when Boular was about 16 and Hussain was 15 years her senior, Sky News reports. When Hussain was killed in Syria, Boular was charged and detained. She soon recruited her older sister, Rizlaune, to help with a grenade and gun attack in central London, wanting to join Hussain in martyrdom, The Guardian reports. Police discovered messages on her phone between the sisters, who used an Alice in Wonderland-themed code to discuss the plan. Rizlaine Boular, 22, pleaded guilty to plotting the attack and her mother, Mina Dich, admitted to assisting her, The Guardian reports. The prosecutor, Duncan Atkinson, said Boular and Hussain “planned to launch an attack against members of the public, selected largely at random, in the environs of that cultural jewel and most popular of tourist attractions, the British Museum, in central London,” according to Sky. Safaa Boular is one of the youngest women to have been charged and convicted of terrorism offenses in Britain. During the trial, her lawyer claimed that she had been “groomed” by Hussain. A jury deliberated for two days before finding Safaa Boular guilty. Sentencing will take place in about six weeks.

Man agrees to 15 - year term for plotting San Francisco attack . Prosecutors say Jameson, of Modesto , California , told undercover federal agents that he planned to use pipe bombs to channel victims into part of Pier 39 so he could shoot them.

An undercover agent told Jameson several times to think about what he was doing, according to the FBI, and each time Jameson said he was ready to attack. Agents also recovered a martyr's letter signed with an Islamic variation of Jameson's name.

Jameson was discharged from the Marines for having an allergic reaction to a bee sting, had a "tumultuous marriage" in which his wife went to prison for attacking him with a knife, and he lost parental rights to his two children two days before he first talked to agents, Lee said.

"Every time the government's been involved in his life, it's turned out poorly for him," Lee said. "I do believe he was very susceptible to suggestion."

The FBI arrested Jameson on Dec. 22. He is set for sentencing Sept. 4.
