Ahmed Mohamed agreed to plead guilty today on terror charges.
Former University of South Florida student Ahmed Mohamed has agreed to plead guilty to a federal charge of providing material support to terrorists, according to an agreement filed in Tampa federal court today.
Mohamed, 26, faces up to 15 years in prison. A sentencing date has not been set.
“This plea agreement was at the request of our client after a very long and agonizing decision by both him and his family, and it was his decision to resolve this matter through this plea,” said Linda Moreno, one of Mohamed’s defense attorneys.
Mohamed was arrested Aug. 4 near Goose Creek, S.C., with Youssef Megahed, 22, another former USF student. A sheriff’s deputy stopped the men for speeding and searched their car when he became suspicious. He found what prosecutors said were low-grade explosives in the trunk.
Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif MOHAMED came to the United States on an F-1 student visa, which requires a clearance from the Homeland Security Department.
Last year National Terror Alert reported on an amazing development on the Goose Creek Terror case:
An odd video raises new questions about the USF students involved in the Goose Creek terror case. Ahmed Mohamed and Yousef Megahed are already charged with driving explosives across state lines. Now prosecutors say Megahed’s brother Yehia, was caught sending a sinister code through a closed circuit jail-house camera.
This was an AMAZING video!

Prosecuters said they broke the code. They said it was sinister but did not say what it meant.
Today, Yousef Megahed’s friend and accomplice Ahmed Mohamed agreed to plead guilty to providing material support to terrorists.
