Joining the fight?: Federal authorities say he was on his way to fight for ISIS, but 19-year-old Mohammed Hamzah Khan never made it out of Chicago.

Now Khan’s charged with one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. The charge he faces carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
