|Ahmed Mohamed and Yousef Megahed — Indicted on carrying explosive materials across state lines and additional charges.|
We’ve been following this case for a long time (see links at bottom), and now one of the “really naive kids” with “fireworks” (according to CAIR) has agreed to plead guilty to providing material support to terrorists.
As we’ve said before, “Truth or CAIR?”
Michelle has the story and a PDF of the plea agreement:
Former University of South Florida student Ahmed Mohamed has agreed to plead guilty to providing material support to terrorists, according to a signed 12-page plea agreement entered onto the docket in U.S. District Court.
Mohamed, an Egyptian citizen, was arrested, along with another student, Youssef Megahed, in North Carolina in August after deputies said they found explosive materials in their trunk.
Authorities charged Mohamed with trying to help terrorists in connection with a video they said he made and posted to the Web site YouTube. On the video, authorities said, he showed how to use a remote-controlled toy to detonate a bomb.
Under the terms of the plea deal, prosecutors have agreed to dismiss other charges, including counts in an indictment alleging he illegally transported explosives. The maximum penalty for the charge to which Mohamed will plead guilty is 15 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
