COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -

A Columbus man pleaded guilty on Wednesday after attempting to provide material support to ISIS.

The Columbus Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Aaron Travis Daniels, 20, also known as Harun Muhammad, on Nov. 7, 2016, as Daniels was leaving Columbus to join ISIS in Libya.

“This case demonstrates how terrorist activities abroad can reach into our local communities,” U.S. Attorney Benjamin C. Glassman said in a news release. “Our office and agencies in the JTTF will continue to cooperate as we work to protect our national security.”

Daniels faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
