He is in jail for attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State terrorist organization.
Guerra caught the attention of the FBI for his role as the head of an unofficial media outlet for the Islamic State, which created and disseminated propaganda for the organization.
He would recruit other Islamic State sympathizers with “foreign language abilities” in order to translate propaganda and instructional content.
Since the FBI’s investigation into Guerra began in October 2019, he had communicated with three different online covert employees, and pursued two of them romantically.
During their communication, Guerra revealed his true identity, which included images of himself, and his role in spreading propaganda for the terrorist organization
Guerra was accused of creating several videos promoting the Islamic State, including a “Call to Islam” video that featured the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, and a guide on how to make a bomb in your mom’s kitchen.
FBI covert employees identified several tactics Guerra used to protect his online identity, which included using cryptocurrency, according to Hughes.
Guerra is facing a charge of attempted material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
