    A Maryland teen faces federal charges for allegedly helping this woman, Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose, who pleaded guilty to her role in a global terror plot.

    A high school honors student has pleaded not guilty in federal court in Philadelphia to charges he helped the American terror suspect dubbed "Jihad Jane" raise money and recruits.

    Eighteen-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid of suburban Baltimore entered the plea Monday at his first public court appearance since his arrest in July.

    U.S. prosecutors say Khalid tried to recruit men to wage jihad in Europe and South Asia, and women with passports. The indictment filed last week says he met Colleen “Jihad Jane” LaRose of Pennsylvania in an Internet chat room.

    Kurt Gorman says he's still shocked that his former lover and roommate Colleen LaRose has been accused of recruiting and assisting terrorists.

    Neither family nor friends were in court to support Khalid. He faces a 15-year prison term and deportation to his native Pakistan if convicted.

    Defense lawyer Jeffrey Lindy says his client's online posts are less sinister than the government believes.
