According to a criminal complaint filed with U.S. District Court in Colorado, Shannon Maureen Conley, born in 1996, attended military training with the U.S. Army Explorers earlier this year, before trying to fly to Syria to meet a co-conspirator only identified as Y.M.Y.M., whom Conley met online last year, told her he was an active member in the terrorist group of so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
Her case had been sealed until last Friday when a federal judge ordered most of the records made public. Some details, apparently including names and addresses, were redacted from the criminal complaint provided by federal officials on Wednesday.
Agents arrested Conley at Denver international airport in April as she prepared to board a flight to Germany, court papers said.
Before traveling to Syria, the court papers said, Conley was to obtain additional skills and training to provide support to the insurgents, and to fight herself if deemed necessary.
In an interview in December 2013, she told FBI agents she joined USAE to be trained in military tactics and firearms, and that she "intended to use that training to go overseas to wage war," the affidavit said.
"When asked if she still wanted to carry out the plans, knowing they are illegal, Conley said that she does," it said.
If convicted, Conley faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.
