AMERICAN TERROR PLOT-JUVENILE

A Maryland teen convicted with two women in a Jihadist terror plot is set to be sentenced in Philadelphia.
The FBI says Khalid met LaRose and other extremists online when he was a 15-year-old honors student, and agreed to help them.
He is the rare juvenile detained on federal terrorism charges before turning 18.
In court documents, U.S. prosecutors say the 20-year-old native of Pakistan has assisted with global terrorism investigations since his 2011 arrest.
They are seeking a lengthy sentence but less than the 15-year maximum.
