A 19-year-old suburban Denver woman who federal authorities say intended to wage jihad has pleaded guilty to trying to help the Islamic State militant group in Syria.
Shannon Conley pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in Denver to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
She wore a black and brown headscarf with her striped jail uniform.
She said nothing in federal court other than acknowledging that she understood the plea and its ramifications. She could face up to five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
However, U.S. District Judge Raymond Moore ordered a psychological exam to be conducted before sentencing Conley.
The agreement says she must cooperate with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies and provide information about people in Colorado and elsewhere looking to help terrorists abroad. If she cooperates, prosecutors promised to ask a judge to reduce her sentence.
After the hearing, Conley’s public defender, Robert Pepin, that she has been horrified by the atrocities committed by the Islamic State group and offered her condolences to those who have been caught up in its ‘slaughter and oppression.’
Those atrocities include the filmed beheading of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, who were hostages of the group.
