Boston Police Chief’s Son Is Sentenced After He’s Outed As ‘Soldier of ISIS’

The son of a Boston police captain was sentenced to 20 years in jail on Wednesday for being a “committed soldier” of the Islamic State and helping plan a terror attack.

Alexander Ciccolo, 26, of, Adams, Massachusetts, was first arrested in 2015 when his father Boston Police Capt. Robert Ciccolo contacted authorities about concerns he had over his son’s behavior. Prosecutors have since praised him for a decision that “likely saved the lives of numerous innocent people.”

According to a Justice Department statement, Ciccolo pleaded guilty in May on a variety of charges that included counts of “attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization,” “attempting to use weapons of mass destruction,” “being a convicted person in possession of firearms,” and another count of “assaulting a nurse during a jail intake process by use of a deadly weapon causing bodily injury.”

On Wednesday, he was sentenced to 20 years in jail and a supervised release. Lawyers for Ciccolo had argued that he suffered from mental health issues and the plan was not well planned out. Their client attended all hearings in Islamic dress. They claimed he is no longer loyal to the Islamic State, but to Islam itself.
