WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A member of the US Army National Guard pleaded guilty to intending to provide material support to Daesh, also known as Daesh, the US Justice Department said in a press release on Monday.

"Hasan R. Edmonds, 23, of Aurora, Illinois, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to provide material support to ISIL [Daesh], a designated foreign terrorist organization, and one count of attempting to provide material support to ISIL," the release stated.

Edmonds admitted that he conspired with his cousin, Jonas Edmonds, to send a letter to Daesh indicating their willingness to fight on the terrorist group’s behalf.

Daesh is designated a terrorist organization by numerous countries, including Russia, where it is outlawed.

Jonas Edmonds also pleaded guilty last week, according to the press release.

Under the current charges, Hasan Edmonds could get up to 30 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

The US District Judge for the Northern District of Illinois has scheduled a sentencing hearing for March 18, 2016, according to the Justice Department.
