Teen to be sentenced in terrorism and gang case

MASON CITY — A northern Iowa teenager has pleaded guilty to gang and terrorism charges.

Sixteen-year-old Justin Gilmore is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 4. His plea agreement says prosecutors will recommend probation and suspended prison sentences for each charge: providing support for terrorism, conspiracy to commit a nonforcible felony, criminal gang participation and gang recruitment.

Prosecutor Andrew Olson said Monday he can’t share more details about the case, including the Mason City locations that were threatened, how they were threatened and whether other people have been charged.

A judge ruled in March that Gilmore’s case would not be handled in juvenile court.
