A 20-year-old Brownsburg man pleaded guiltyWednesday in federal court to trying to join the terrorist group ISIS.

Akram I. Musleh, a U.S. citizen, admits in a plea agreement that from about April 2016 through June 21, 2016, he offered himself to the Islamic State of Iraq, also known as ISIS, knowing it was a “designated foreign terrorist organization.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Musleh faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine after pleading guilty to attempting to provide material support of resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Musleh “sought and obtained introductions to known ISIS/ISIL members and sympathizers to assist him with traveling to Syria and to join ISIS/ISIL,” the plea agreement says. He used social media, instant messaging and texts “to pledge his allegiance to indicate his affiliation with and support for ISIS/ISIL.”

Musleh made five reservations to travel to Iraq and Turkey in April and June 2015. One reservation fell through because his credit card purchase was denied. Another ended when U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials stopped him from boarding a flight to Istanbul. Court documents don’t detail what happened with the other reservations.
