Mississippi Woman Pleads Guilty in Terrorism Investigation

Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 20, of Starkville, Mississippi, pleaded guilty today in the Northern District of Mississippi to conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization.

The plea was announced by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Felicia C. Adams of the Northern District of Mississippi and Special Agent in Charge Donald Alway of the FBI's Jackson, Mississippi, Division.

Young pleaded guilty before Chief U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock of the Northern District of Mississippi to conspiring with Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla to provide material support to ISIL. Dakhlalla pleaded guilty to the same charge on March 13, 2016. Young was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to await sentencing, which will be scheduled at a later date.

The investigation was conducted by the FBI's Jackson Division Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Washington Field Office. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Clay Joyner and Bob Norman of the Northern District of Mississippi and Trial Attorney Rebecca Magnone of the National Security Division's Counterterrorism Section.
