Philadelphia, PA – A Philadelphia woman, Keonna Thomas, who admitted to plotting to travel to Syria to aid the Islamic State group has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Keonna Thomas pleaded guilty last year to attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization.

She told the judge Wednesday she’s not an evil person, but was misled.

Her attorney has said that her client has accepted responsibility and is ready to put the matter behind her and her two young children.
