Amer Alhaggagi is an Oakland man who pleaded guilty to trying to support an Islamic terrorist group.
Alhaggagi said he opened Twitter and Facebook accounts for two people he believed to be Islamic State supporters. Some of the Twitter accounts were subsequently used by the group to distribute news, according to a copy of his plea statement seen by Reuters.
Alhaggagi pleaded guilty to a charge of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist group and three unrelated charges connected with use of a stolen credit card to buy clothing.
The 23-year-old Oakland man plotted for two years with undercover agents to blow up courthouses, landmarks and tourists attractions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
He accessed an Islamic State bomb-making manual and boasted about a series of attacks he wanted to commit on behalf of the group, including setting off a car bomb outside a gay nightclub.
U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer ordered that Alhaggagi serve 10 years in supervised release after serving his 16 years.
