A Virginia court handed down an additional 16 years in prison to a Henrico County man after he violated probation terms, in connection with terror plans. Casey Charles Spain, 28 was re-arrested just weeks after his release on gun charges. He’d served seven years of a 10-year sentence.
Confidential sources inside the prison said he swore allegiance to self-styled ISIS caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
While in prison he got a tattoo on his cheek that reads “Cop Killa” and one on his back of the ISIS flag, according to court documents. The sources said Spain planned to travel overseas to join in jihad for ISIS.
“Given this information, the FBI began conducting intensive surveillance of Spain immediately upon his release from incarceration,” a spokesperson for United States Attorney Dana Boente said.
Spain was caught in an undercover sting operation trying to obtain an illegal weapon. When confronted he fled on foot but was caught by an FBI SWAT team.
Spain has a violent history. He is a registered sex offender and served his initial sentence for abduction with the intent to defile.
