David Daoud Wright, an Islamic State-inspired jihadi, has been found guilty on all of the counts he faced in connection with a plot to head a prominent blogger.
Wright, 28, was found guilty today in federal court in Boston of conspiracy to provide support for a foreign terrorist group, conspiracy and obstruction of justice, for recruiting his uncle, Usaamah Rahim, 26, and Nicholas Rovinski, 26, to carry out an ISIS-inspired plot to behead New York political activist Pamela Geller and police officers. Rahim was shot dead by Boston police and federal agents when he confronted them with a knife two years ago.
Rovinski pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to provide material support to ISIS and commit acts of terrorism in exchange for a 15- to 22-year sentence. He testified against Wright and is due to be sentenced Dec. 5.
