Shannon Maureen Conley, a 19-year-old Colorado woman, was arrested at Denver International Airport as it was believed she was on her way provide material support to terrorists.
The arrest happened in April, but court documents concerning the matter were just recently unsealed.
According to the report, the terrorist group she intended to give information to is the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, also known as ISIS.
It was also known in advance of her being apprehended that she had plans to meet with and marry a male member who is reportedly an ISIS fighter that she had met on the Internet.
This was confirmed by Conley over the course of multiple interviews with FBI agents and her parents prior to boarding her flight to Germany. She was allegedly heading to Turkey to wait for the man to get in touch with her. Her parents were strongly opposed to her plans and notified federal agents after discovering her one way air ticket.
The court documents say that after the two were married, she was going to become an ISIS camp nurse.
Authorities were first made aware that Conley appeared to have ties to terrorists by a pastor at a Colorado church.
She is currently in the custody of US Marshalls and awaiting trial. She could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.
