CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Attorneys for a Ladson teenager accused of trying to join the terrorist group ISIS are scheduled to be back in court next month.
A judge has scheduled a hearing for Aug. 8 in the case of 18-year-old Zakaryia Abdin.
Abdin was arrested in March.
Federal prosecutors say Abdin sought help online from a person he thought was affiliated with ISIS, but was really an undercover agent.
In June, prosecutors told Judge Richard Gergel they will go before a grand jury to seek a new indictment against Abdin.
As it stands now, he faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
