"Indiana teen accused of supporting ISIL appears in federal court" WISH-TV
Akram Musleh is charged with supporting terrorism. The 18-year-old said very little during his initial court appearance Friday following an indictment earlier this month on those charges. A handful of women, later identified as family members of Musleh, smiled at him while others wiped tears during the brief appearance. In an interview with reporters Friday, Musleh’s attorney Thomas Durkin said the case against his client was trumped up out of the nation’s fear of another terrorist attack. He also argued that federal authorities should have attempted to help Musleh when they first suspected him of being influenced by radical extremists.
