CASE ENTRY

United States v. Rayyan

Dearborn Heights, Mich. pizza delivery man with affinity for watching ISIS videos, purchasing firearms draws attention of sympathetic 19-year-old woman on Twitter. He discusses with her his plans to attack a church. Yikes! She’s undercover FBI. He pleads guilty to firearms violations. District court: Five years in prison, which includes an upward variance thanks to the church-attacking plans. Sixth Circuit: That’s fine, even though the gov’t hasn’t charged him for said plans.
