RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – A former police officer is asking a federal appeals court to overturn his convictions on terror-related charges.
Nicholas Young is serving a 15-year prison sentence after being convicted in a sting operation of attempting to help the Islamic State group.
The former patrol officer in the D.C. region’s Metrorail system is the first law-enforcement officer in the country to be convicted of a terrorism offense.
