A California man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison and supervised release for life for attempting to support Islamic State and lying to get a replacement American passport to join the group in Syria.

Adam Dandach was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana.

The 22-year-old pleaded guilty last year to attempting to provide material support to a terror group and lying on his passport application. Federal prosecutors sought a 20-year sentence.

The case is one in a series involving young men in states ranging from California to Georgia who have been charged with trying to assist Islamic State and other terrorist groups.

Dandach's lawyer has said his client claimed Islamic State was not a designated terrorist group when he initially planned his trip to Syria to join a charitable aid convoy in 2013.
