Another guilty plea in the plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist

The Chicago Tribune reports:
A Maryland honor student pleaded guilty Friday to conspiring to help a Pennsylvania woman known as "Jihad Jane" plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist who had offended some Muslims.

Mohammed Hassan Khalid, 18, is believed to be the youngest person ever charged with terrorism in a U.S. civilian court. He faces a sentence as high as 15 years in prison.
Last year, Colleen R. LaRose, AKA 'jihad jane', pled guilty to her part in the plot to kill cartoonist Lars Vilks.  Co-conspirator, Colorado resident Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, has also pled guilty.  Unusual among terrorists, LaRose and Paulin-Ramirez are both blondes.

The conviction may interefere with Khalid's ability to attend Johns Hopkins University where he had been accepted with a full scholarship.
