Accused of Plotting Terrorism
On July 27, 2009, Zakariya Boyd was arrested and charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim, and injure persons abroad. On December 20, 2011, he received a 9-year prison sentence. He was 20 years old at the time of his arrest. He is one of seven men simultaneously arrested near Raleigh, North Carolina on these charges. His father, Daniel Patrick Boyd, was arrested as the terrorist cell ring leader. His brother, Dylan Boyd, was a co-conspirator. Both Zak and his brother Dylan apologized at sentencing to fellow Americans for not resisting their domineering father and his radical Muslim views. An eighth man mentioned in the July 22 indictment is believed to be in Pakistan.

• LORD please save their souls in Jesus name and give them power of Your Holy Spirit to be able to counsel others of similar back ground since they understand why they got involved and that they had better choices they could have made.
