Cudahy mother accused of trying to help ISIS pleads not guilty

CUDAHY, Wis. (CBS 58) – A Cudahy mother, accused of attempting to aide ISIS, pleaded not guilty in federal court Wednesday.

Waheba Issa Dais, 45, was arrested earlier this month, after the Department of Justice says she tried to provide material and personnel support to the terrorist organization, ISIS.

A federal grand jury indicted Waheba on Tuesday, charging her with two counts of “Attempting to provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization- services and personnel.” Each charges carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine and five years of supervised release.

Waheba entered a plea of not guilty. Her attorney declined to comment after Wednesday’s court proceedings.
