A former U.S. Air Force mechanic accused of attempting to join ISIS will appear in court Wednesday to face terrorism charges.
Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh had been indicted by a grand jury in Brooklyn on two counts, including attempting to provide material support to a terror organization.
Public defender Michael Schneider said Pugh will plead not guilty when he appears in Brooklyn federal court, NBC New York reported.
According to the indictment, Pugh was fired from a job in Kuwait as an airplane mechanic in December 2014. He then allegedly flew from Egypt to Turkey on January 10 in an effort to cross the border into Syria to join ISIS and wage violent jihad.
