Suspected Ohio Terrorist Changes Plea To Multiple Charges

U.S. Attorney's Office

Federal prosecutors say a southwest Ohio man has pleaded guilty to charges of planning to attack the U.S. Capitol in support of the Islamic State group during President Obama's 2015 State of the Union address. Christopher Cornell changed his plea yesterday as part of a deal in which prosecutors will drop a fourth charge. Sentencing is scheduled October 31. Cornell was arrested last year after he allegedly bought two military rifles and ammunition.
