Ciccolo pleaded guilty to terrorism charges back in May, a month before he was scheduled to go to trial.

The school was identified by Ciccolo’s lawyers in court documents as New Mexico State University.

Special agent in charge of the FBI Boston office, Harold Shaw called Ciccolo a “committed soldier” of the Islamic State group who wanted to kill innocent Americans.

Ciccolo’s lawyers say the man had a troubled childhood and dealt with mental health and substance abuse issues.

According to the associated press, Boston police Capt. Robert Ciccolo tipped off the FBI after becoming concerned about his son’s violent rhetoric.
