NC Man Sentenced to 15 Years for Supporting IS; Tried to Create a Terrorist Cell for Attacks in US

A U.S. District judge sentenced a North Carolina man to 15 years in prison for trying to create a terrorist cell to carry out attacks in the U.S., the Clarion Project website reports today (February 6, 2019).

Erick Jamal Hendricks, 38, of Charlotte, was convicted last March of conspiring to provide material support to ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) by trying to recruit and train fellow ISIS sympathizers through social media.

Attorneys for the government asked the judge for a 30-year sentence, the maximum for the crimes.

Although the judge declined, he did order Hendricks to be subject to probation for his entire life.
