A radicalized muslim former U.S. Marine from Northern California has been arrested for allegedly offering to carry out a terrorist attack on December 25th in San Francisco at the Pier 39 tourist attraction.
FBI agents arrested 26-year-old Everitt Aaron Jameson in Modesto on Friday morning, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. He is charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
Jameson appeared in a federal court in Fresno Friday afternoon. His public defender, Eric Kersten, denied the allegations but did not enter a plea. Jameson was described as stoic and mostly silent during Friday’s proceedings, only occasionally speaking privately with Kersten.
