The arrested womens were charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction against persons or property in the United States and face the possibility of life in prison if convicted when a jury will decide. It was proved that Siddiqui and Velentzas had been in contact with al Qaeda members. The investigators screened their background and founded significant facts. In 2009, Siddiqui, 31, wrote a poem in a magazine published by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula that declared there is “no excuse to sit back and wait – for the skies rain martyrdom,”  Both women affirmed many times they are “citizens of the Islamic State.” From their homes, agents recovered items including three gas tanks, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, handwritten notes on recipes for bomb making and jihadist literature
“My client will enter a plea of not guilty, if and when there is an indictment. I know it’s a serious case, but we’re going to fight it out in court,” said Siddiqui’s lawyer, Thomas Dunn.
