Ex-Honors Student's Terror Sentencing Scheduled

Posted:
PHILADELPHIA, Pa.- (AP) A Maryland teen convicted with two women in a Jihadist terror plot is set to be sentenced in Philadelphia.
    
Mohammad Hassan Khalid of Ellicott City, Md., is linked to the case of 50-year-old Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose, who was sentenced in January to 10 years in prison.
    
The FBI says Khalid met LaRose and other extremists online when he was a 15-year-old honors student, and agreed to help them.
    
He is the rare juvenile detained on federal terrorism charges before turning 18.
    
In court documents, U.S. prosecutors say the 20-year-old native of Pakistan has assisted with global terrorism investigations since his 2011 arrest.
    
They are seeking a lengthy sentence but less than the 15-year maximum.
