34-yr-old man bags 6-yr sentence for supporting ISIS

A 34-year-old man identified as Daniel Seth Franey, also known as Abu Dawuud has been slammed with a 6-year jail term for declaring support for Islamic State after he expressed his desire to attack the police or U.S. Military personnel out of allegiance.

Dawuud was slammed with the sentence by the Justice Department chaired by U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes on Monday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma for declaring support for ISIS and also illegally possessing firearms.

According to Hayes, Dawuud, of Montesano, was arrested in February 2016 following an undercover investigation during which he repeatedly violated a permanent protection order prohibiting him from possessing firearms.

He became the target of a federal investigation following reports from members of the public that they had heard Franey espouse violent rhetoric, particularly in support of the Islamic State group.
