Chicago student now faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.

US authorities have arrested and charged a 20-year-old student from Chicago with providing material support to ISIS.

According to court documents, the teen allegedly created a Python script to automate saving ISIS multimedia from official social media channels, so other members could re-post it on their own accounts, and help spread the terrorist group’s propaganda.
