A 22-year old Orange County man was convicted to 15 years in prison for planning to join the Islamic State terrorist organization. He was stopped at the airport leaving for Syria where they found jihadi propaganda in his phone. His mother was the first one to find out the cruel intentions of her son, it isn’t known if she tipped him off to the FBI.

A native of Orange County, California, was sentenced yesterday to 15 years in prison. Why? That is what you are supposed to ask because he aspired to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Not only did he aspire to it, but he actually lied to get a replacement American passport to head overseas.
