MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal grand jury in Madison has formally indicted a Wisconsin man accused of attempting to join the Islamic State group.
Prosecutors said the grand jury returned the indictment accusing Joshua Van Haften with trying to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization on Thursday.
The grand jury indictment is essentially a formality. Online court records indicate prosecutors charged Van Haften with the same count via complaint in October. The complaint was unsealed last month and Van Haften was arrested at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago on April 9.
Van Haften is scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in Madison on Friday morning. Online court records didn’t list an attorney for him.
