Kristopher Sean Matthews, 34, of South Carolina has plead guilty to a terror charge for plotting to bomb or shoot up sites including the White House and Trump Tower, reportedly inspired by ISIS, according to federal authorities.
In a hearing before a U.S. magistrate judge in San Antonio, Matthews plead guilty to a conspiracy charge to provide material support to the Islamic State group.
Matthews acknowledged that since May 2019, he had conspired with Jaylyn Christopher Molina, 22, of Cost, Texas, to share information on the bomb making process for the purposes of domestic and foreign attacks on behalf of ISIS.
Matthews also admitted that the two had conspired to radicalize and recruit other individuals to support the Islamic militant organization.
Molina and Matthews were both indicted by a grand jury on October 14, each for one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and one count of providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
When he is sentenced on March 4, Matthews, who remains in federal custody, faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Molina, who is also in federal custody, faces up to 40 years in federal prison if convicted.
