Mobile Man Pleads Guilty to Supporting Terrorism

Posted: Updated:

An Alabama man who the FBI said wanted to wage violent jihad in Africa has pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.
Randy Lamar Wilson pleaded guilty in federal court in Mobile on Friday. Under a plea agreement with prosecutors, he could face 15 years in federal prison, contingent on the information he provides about co-conspirators.
He was arrested in December at the Atlanta airport while boarding a flight with his family to Mauritania.
Federal prosecutors portrayed Wilson as an Islamic radical who wanted to reunite with Omar Hammami, an American who also grew up in Alabama and became one of the most well-known jihadists in Somalia.
