A federal judge has handed down a prison sentence of more than six years for an Ohio man convicted of trying to help the Daesh terror group.
The 80-month sentence for Aaron Daniels on Friday in Columbus followed his guilty plea last July to a charge accusing him of attempting to travel to Libya to join the group.
Authorities say Daniels wired $250 to a Daesh operative in January 2016 and told an undercover informant that he was interested in traveling to commit violence overseas.
U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus ordered lifetime court supervision for Daniels after he's released from prison.
The 21-year-old Daniels expressed remorse for his actions. His attorney sought a sentence of two years, citing Daniels' mental illness and acknowledgement that he did wrong.
