Jailhouse Jihadi: The Intriguing Case of Charles Casey Spain

Often what comes out of prison is much worse than what went in. How else do we understand (explain) the case of Casey Charles Spain. He went to jail as a registered sex offender in 2010.  Seven years later he emerged from his prison cell as a committed jihadist who had sworn allegiance to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and was willing to kill innocent men, women, and children for the cause of ISIS.                                                In August of 2017 he was arrested while on parole and charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force conducted a sting operation to dupe Spain into thinking he was meeting with an ISIS soldier who would provide him with a weapon necessary to kill American infidels.                                                                       On November 3rd Spain pleaded guilty to illegal possession of a firearm and faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in February of 2018.                                                                    While we are relieved that this would be jihadist is off the streets, the question remains as to how someone like Spain became radicalized while incarcerated.
