Denver Woman Who Tried to Help Terrorists Receives 4 Years

Friday, 23 Jan 2015 06:53 PM

A 19-year-old suburban Denver woman who tried to go to Syria to help Islamic State militants has been sentenced to four years in prison

Shannon Conley learned her punishment in Denver federal court on Friday as her parents watched.

She wore a black and tan headscarf with her jail uniform.

Conley pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization in September under a deal that requires her to divulge information she may have about other Americans with similar intentions.

FBI agents say Conley wanted to marry a suitor she met online who told her he was fighting with the extremists. She repeatedly told them she wanted to fight alongside him or use her skills as a nurse's aide to help.
