COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Court documents say a plea deal has been reached in the case of an Ohio man accused of trying to travel to Libya to join the Islamic State group.

A document filed in federal court Thursday says Aaron Daniels, of Columbus, will plead guilty to one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

Authorities allege Daniels wired $250 to an Islamic State operative in January 2016 and told an undercover informant he was interested in traveling to commit violence overseas.

Daniels was taken into custody last year at John Glenn Columbus International Airport after a months-long investigation.

Judge Edmond Sargus on Friday scheduled Daniels’ plea hearing for June 29. Daniel faces 20 years in prison.

His attorney did not return a message seeking comment.


The AP forgot to mention his Muslim aliases – Harun Muhammad and Abu Yusuf.

His mother stated:

‘He linked up with a Masjid in our neighborhood and attended regularly.’


Foreign-funded and led mosques in the U.S. operate and recruit jihadists with impunity.
