Ex-Soldier to Plead Guilty to Aiding Terror Group
At least he's saving us the trouble of a trial:
A former Army soldier accused of trying to provide support to a terrorist organization in Somalia after he left the military intends to plead guilty in connection with the case, court documents show.The cornhole: watch out for it!
Craig Baxam of Laurel, Md., was arrested in Kenya in late 2011, and prosecutors said he was on his way to neighboring Somalia to join the terrorist group al-Shabab. Baxam was ultimately charged with attempting to provide material support and resources to the group. Baxam’s trial in federal court in Greenbelt, Md., was set to begin Monday, but this week prosecutors filed a court document signaling his intention to plead guilty in the case.
