California Man Guilty of Trying to Support ISIS

Monday, 10 Aug 2015 07:44 PM

Federal prosecutors say a 21-year-old California man who tried to travel to Syria pleaded guilty to attempting to help the Islamic State terror organization.

Adam Dandach of Orange pleaded guilty Monday to attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State and to lying on a passport application.

Prosecutors say Dandach could face up to 25 years in federal prison when sentenced Jan. 11.

Dandach was stopped last July while trying to board a flight for Turkey. He told FBI agents he was heading to Syria and planned to pledge allegiance and offer assistance to the Islamic State.

Dandach lied on a passport application when he claimed he accidentally threw away his old one. Prosecutors say he knew his mother confiscated his passport when she learned of his travel plans.
