      Mohammad Hassan Khalid faces 15 years in prison on terror charges

      Mohammad Hassan Khalid teenager faces 15 years in prison after admitting he agreed to help the American terrorist dubbed "Jihad Jane."

      PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Maryland teenager faces 15 years in prison after admitting he agreed to help the American terrorist dubbed "Jihad Jane" raise money and recruits for a Muslim holy war.

      Eighteen-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Philadelphia to a single count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists in and around Europe. A sentencing date wasn't been set.

      The Ellicott City, Md., honors student had been preparing to go to Johns Hopkins University on a full scholarship. He has been in federal custody since last summer.

      Authorities say at age 15 he met a Pennsylvania woman online who called herself Jihad Jane. The woman, Colleen LaRose, admitted she had plotted to kill a Swedish artist who had offended Muslims. She faces life in prison.
