Noelle Velentzas is a 33-year-old woman from Queens has been sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for planning an Islamic State-inspired terrorist attack in New York City.
She was sentenced to 16 and a half years in prison after pleading guilty with her co-defendant Asia Siddiqui in August of 2019 to charges of teaching or distributing information pertaining to the making and use of an explosive, destructive device or weapon of mass destruction.
According to court documents, the pair, who were roommates, planned from 2013 until the time of their arrest in 2015 to conduct a terrorist attack.
They taught each other chemistry and electrical skills in order to create a bomb and detonating devices.
They also purchased materials to be used in an explosive device and discussed bombs that were used during the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013, the attack on the World Trade Center in 1993 and the bombing of Oklahoma City in 1995.
The charging documents detail that Velentzas expressed support for waging jihad while stating Osama bin Laden, the man responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York City, was her hero while praising the destruction and death he wrought.
When Velentzas and Siddiqui were arrested, propane gas tanks, soldering tools, car bomb instructions and jihadist literature, machetes and knives were found during a search of their apartment.
