Mississippi woman sentenced to 12 years for trying to join ISIS

A Mississippi woman who once sought to disguise a planned journey to join the Islamic State group as her honeymoon has been sentenced to 12 years in prison on a terrorism charge.

Vicksburg native Jaelyn Young was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock. Young pleaded guilty in March to one count of conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist organization.

    That’s one very lucky lady. I hate to think what would have become of her, black and so very pretty, had she made it there. G*d help her to change during her prison stay.

    Her boyfriend mu was a recent grad from Ol’ Miss and she was the instigator of the whole mess who hardly showed up for anything as a freshman.

    Guess leaving home gave her the first real chance to get her evil on.

      Why jail her when you can give her a plane ticket in exchange for her passport?
