ISIS Defector Turned Cooperator Gets Sentenced to Time Served

An ISIS defector from Staten Island dodged decades in prison Thursday for turning on the terrorists to become a valuable government cooperator.

Brooklyn Federal Judge Jack Weinstein said the young man could do more good on the outside than on the inside.

“It will actually protect the general public more,” Weinstein said, noting the time-served sentence he imposed puts the man — referred to only as “John Doe” — in an easy position to keep cooperating. Conversely, extended lockup could embitter the man and cause him to fall back in with dangerous extremists, the judge added, as he instructed the man that the feds can demand to look at his electronics any time they want.
