North Carolina resident pleads guilty to supporting terrorists – Los Angeles Times

On September 15, 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported that 24 year old Dylan Boyd of North Carolina pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

In 2009, Dylan, along with his brother, father, and four other men were indicted by federal authorities for conspiring "to advance violent jihad…and committing acts of murder, kidnapping or maiming persons."  According to federal authorities, the Boyd family are U.S. citizens who trained in military tactics and traveled overseas to plan for attacks.  Since the indictment, all three members of the Boyd family have pleaded guilty and the elder Boyd, Daniel Boyd, is expected to be a prosecution witness in a trial against three co-defendants.

While Dylan Boyd is expected to be sentenced later this year, he has been advised that he could face up to 15 years in prision and a fine of up to $1 million.
