A woman, Shannon Maureen Conley, has been handed a 4-year jail term after she admitted she wanted to join ISIS.
“What is it that will cause others to stop” in the future, Judge Raymond P. Moore said during sentencing.
Before sentencing, Conley wept as she read a statement saying, “It was after arrest that I learned the truth about the ISIS that I was taught to respect.”
“Since my incarceration I have had a chance to read the entire Quran,” she said. She concluded that “the scholars” she had been following in her online research about Islam had distorted the Quran, she said.
