In this Feb. 25, 2015 file photo, Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, left, speaks with his defense attorney, Sam Shamansky, during a hearing to set bond on charges of money laundering and providing support for terrorism in Columbus, Ohio. A Thursday, April 16 indictment says Mohamud left the country a year ago to train and fight with terrorists in Syria. The indictment says Mohamud, who was arrested in Columbus earlier this year, weighed which extremist group in Syria was more effective before his travels.
A man described by his attorney as "a normal 23-year-old kid" pleaded innocent Friday to charges he traveled to Syria and trained alongside terrorists, then returned to the U.S. with plans to attack a military base or a prison.
