Sayoc has said repeatedly that his packages would not have exploded and he never meant to injure anyone. "He wished them no good, but he was not so lost as to wish them dead, at least not by his own hand", the judge said. Investigators later concluded the devices had no mechanism to trigger an explosion.
Cesar Sayoc pleaded guilty to mailing pipe bombs addressed to high-profile Democrats, including former President Obama and Hillary Clinton; Bryan Llenas reports.
None of the devices detonated, no one was hurt, and several were intercepted before reaching their intended targets.
Sayoc began crying when US District Judge Jed Rakoff read the sentence in a court in NY on Monday.
"Now that I am a sober man, I know I was a very sick man. I should have listened to my mother, the love of my life, when she told me to get help", he said.

Describing the devices Sayoc sent, he said that each consisted of roughly six inches of PVC pipe, a small clock, a battery, some wiring, and what is known as "energetic material", which is essentially potential explosives and material that gives off heat and energy through a reaction to heat, shock, or friction. Sayoc wept and crossed himself when Rakoff announced the sentence.
Federal prosecutors sought a sentence of life in prison, arguing he had an extensive criminal history and had shown no remorse for his actions.
Sayoc's "terrorist attack" was the culmination of years of "hate-filled threats", months of planning and "days of carefully assembling the explosive mailings", according to the prosecution's sentencing memorandum obtained by CNN. "The defendant terrorized the public and placed thousands of individuals in harm's way". However, they did contain the contents of fireworks and other chemicals which potentially could have detonated if exposed to enough heat or vibration.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the devices "would not have functioned as a result of their design". The filings also stated that Sayoc was "abandoned by his father and sexually abused by a teacher at his Catholic school".
"In this darkness", the lawyers wrote, "Mr. Sayoc found light in Donald J. Trump".
Sayoc was labeled "the MAGA Bomber" after photos circulated of his van that was covered in pro-Trump stickers and posters, along with other images including Trump's 2016 Democratic presidential challenger Clinton in crosshairs.
Sayoc believed he was sending "a hoax device, and he had no true grasp of the severity of his crimes or the potential ramifications of his actions", according to his lawyers: "Now, almost a year later, he understands how deeply wrong his actions were, and he is truly sorry for sending these packages".
Still, the judge said, Sayoc's crimes were "far too horrible" for a "relatively lenient" 10-year sentence.
