US man charged with supporting Islamic State militants

A man has been charged in federal court with trying to aid the Islamic State group. Court records show that a plea hearing for Leon Nathan Davis was scheduled Wednesday afternoon in US District Court in Augusta. Davis is charged with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization. Charging documents filed Wednesday provided few details other than noting that Davis is accused of seeking to aid Islamic State militants last October. He was originally charged in February with illegal possession of rifles, shotguns and handguns by a convicted felon. Davis’ attorney, Michael Loebl, did not immediately return a phone message.
