The 19-year-old Beavercreek man accused of trying to fly overseas to train with ISIS has been indicted on a terrorism charge, according to federal court documents.
Naser Almadaoji was indicted in Dayton’s U.S. District Court on one count of attempting to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. That charge carries a maximum 20 years in prison.
The indictment also indicated a seizure of Almadaoji’s foreign and domestic assets and specifically identified two phones and a laptop computer.
A pretrial hearing scheduled for today no longer shows up on the court’s daily calendar. Almadaoji is being held in jail with no bond until his case concludes.
“He’s a 19-year-old who was saying things to law enforcement rather than doing things,” Almadaoji’s defense attorney James Fleisher said during last week’s detention hearing, adding that his client made “puffery-type statements.”
