NEW BERN, N.C. – A seventh member of a home-grown terror ring that conspired to attack the Quantico U.S. Marine Corps base in Virginia and foreign targets has been convicted.
U.S. Attorney Thomas Walker said 35-year-old Anes Subasic was found guilty Thursday of conspiring to help terrorists and to hurt people overseas. He earlier was found guilty of two counts of unlawful procurement of citizenship.
He faces up to life in prison for conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim and injure people in a foreign country and up to 15 years in prison for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.
Prosecutors said he was part of a terror ring led by Daniel Patrick Boyd, who lived in rural Johnston County. Boyd pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges in February 2011.
