Colorado Woman Pleads Guilty in Islamic State Terror Case

DENVER (AP) — A 19-year-old suburban Denver woman who federal authorities say intended to wage jihad has pleaded guilty to trying to help the Islamic State militant group in Syria.

Shannon Conley pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in Denver to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. She wore a black and brown headscarf with her striped jail uniform.

Authorities say she was arrested at the Denver airport in April as she boarded a flight she hoped would get her to Syria.

Documents say Conley told FBI agents that she wanted to use her skills as a nurse’s aide to help the militants. Agents repeatedly tried to discourage her.

Authorities say she wanted to marry a man she met online who claimed to be fighting with the Islamic State group.
