News broke in early August that a group of radical Muslims were operating a terrorist training camp in New Mexico. The individuals stood accused of training young children to attack schools and hospitals in mass shootings.
Three of the five suspects were inexplicably released on bond soon after their arrests, then local prosecutors dropped child abuse charges and failed to press any other charges. That’s when the FBI stepped in and arrested all five suspects in late August — and now, they’ve all been officially indicted by a federal grand jury.
Federal firearms and conspiracy charges
According to Fox News, a federal grand jury in Albuquerque, New Mexico, issued indictments against all five suspects on federal firearms and conspiracy charges.
The charges are centered around the fact that one of the suspects, 35-year-old Jany Leveille, is an undocumented alien from Haiti who was illegally in possession of firearms and ammunition.
The other four suspects — Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40 — have been charged with aiding and abetting Leveille and conspiring to provide her with illicit possession of firearms and ammunition.
Prison time plus deportation
According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of New Mexico, the five defendants were charged with not only knowingly providing firearms and ammunition to an illegal alien — a prohibited possessor — but also with illegally transporting firearms and ammunition from Georgia to New Mexico.
Further, as part of the conspiracy, “the defendants established a training camp and firing range in Taos County, where they stored firearms and ammunition and engaged in firearms and tactical training as part of their common plan to prepare for violent attacks on government, military, educational, and financial institutions.”
All five defendants were scheduled to appear in federal court on Wednesday for an arraignment and detention hearing related to the federal charges.
If convicted, all five defendants face up to five years in federal prison on the conspiracy charges.
Leveille would additionally face up to 10 years in prison on the firearms possession charge and an automatic deportation back to Haiti upon completion of her sentence.
Many people were shocked and outraged when local prosecutors in New Mexico failed to bring any indictments against this group of extremists who were plotting terrorist attacks and training young children to carry out those attacks.
Thankfully, the feds stepped in, and while the federal charges don’t address all of the wrongdoing this group is alleged to have done, the federal firearms and conspiracy charges are better than the alternative of letting them all go free with no accountability whatsoever.
