Flood secures downward variance in ISIS terrorism case

SFH Partner Joseph Flood persuaded Federal District Court Judge Liam O’Grady to grant a 108 month downward variance for Mohamed Jalloh, a former Virginia Army National Guard who was found guilty of providing material support for ISIS. Mr. Jalloh’s year-long dalliance with the most notorious terrorist organization in the world presented a very troubling set of circumstances but Mr. Flood but he was able to demonstrate that his client’s decisions were strongly influenced by an overbearing undercover FBI agent and his own history of trauma. In imposing a significantly lower sentence, Judge O’Grady acknowledged Mr. Jalloh’s harrowing life story and his prior military service.
