Virginia Teen Sentenced to Prison for Helping Someone Join ISIS

Ali Shukri Amin, a 17-year-old teen from Manassas, Virginia, has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for attempting to aid ISIS and for assisting another teen on his journey to Syria to join the group.

From the Associated Press:

The judge said he considered 17-year-old Ali Shukri Amin's age and lack of a criminal record during sentencing Friday in federal court in Alexandria. Amin of Manassas told the judge he didn't "expect sympathy."

Amin pleaded guilty in June to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. He would have otherwise been graduating from high school with honors around the time of his plea. Juveniles rarely face charges in the federal system.

He admitted helping another northern Virginia teenager travel to Syria, as well as using Twitter and other social media to solicit donations and support for the Islamic State.

This is scary. High school seniors in America should be preparing to go to college or enter the workforce, not attempting to join a terrorist group. It's frightening that someone that young could be seduced by such an evil organization.
