An attorney for Hoda Muthana, a young woman from Alabama who fled the U.S. to join ISIS in 2014, says she is ready to face any legal consequences of her work promoting ISIS and attacks on U.S. soil.
A report from The Guardian published Monday morning said she is pleading to return home to Alabama.
“She tremendously regrets how misguided she was and recognizes she may have destroyed her life and the life of her child,” Hassan Shibly told AL.com over the phone Monday afternoon. Shibly is an attorney for CAIR Florida and has represented Muthana’s family since she left home. “She wants to face the consequences and protect others from repeating those mistakes she made. She’s just another victim of these monsters.”
