National Guardsman Faces 30 Yrs in Prison for ISIS-Linked Terror Plot
A former National Guard Specialist is now facing decades in prison for trying to join ISIS and hatch a terror plot killing 150 people.
Hasan Edmonds pleaded guilty in a Chicago federal court to conspiring and attempting to provide material support to a terrorist group.
Edmonds had planned to fly to Egypt, hoping eventually to join ISIS, but was arrested at Chicago Midway Airport in March.
At his sentencing March 18, he faces a sentence of up to 30 years.
His cousin, Jonas Edmonds, pleaded guilty last week to similar charges.
Jonas allegedly planned to wear his cousin's military uniform and attack the Joliet Armory in Illinois where Hasan trained. Prosecutors say the men hoped to kill as many as 150 people.
Both men are from Aurora, IL, about 40 miles outside of Chicago.
