A Mississippi woman has plead guilty after authorities accused her and her fiance of trying to join ISIS. Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 20, was charged with conspiring to provide material support to the terror group. She faces a maximum 20-year prison sentence and fine of up to $250,000. Her fiance, Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, pleaded guilty earlier this month.
The two were arrested at a Mississippi airport in February on their way to Syria, according to court documents.
According to a law enforcement official, Dakhlalla is the son of a local imam and Young is the daughter of a police officer. She recently converted to Islam. Prosecutors say that the FBI held “undercover interactions” with Young on the internet after identifying her as a Twitter user who supported ISIS in May 2015. She told the FBI that she was planning to leave with a partner for ISIS-held territory. FULL REPORT
