“Aurora man may plead guilty to terrorism charges,” WLS, May 27, 2015:
CHICAGO (WLS) — An Aurora man accused of trying to join terrorists in Syria may change his plea to guilty.
A lawyer for Abdella Ahmad Tounisi says both sides expect to seal a plea agreement within several weeks.
The 20-year-old was arrested at a Chicago airport in 2013 trying to board a plane for Turkey.
