DENVER – A 19-year-old suburban Denver woman accused of trying to help a foreign terrorist organization plans to plead guilty in the case.
Federal documents filed Friday say an agreement has been reached in the case against Shannon Conley of Arvada. She was arrested at Denver International Airport in April while boarding a flight she hoped would ultimately get her to Syria.
Details of the agreement weren't part of the court filing, but Conley's public defender, Robert Pepin, asked to schedule a change of plea hearing. FBI agents say Conley was intent on waging jihad in the Middle East, despite their overt efforts to stop her.
Authorities say she wanted to live with a suitor she met online, who claimed to be fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
