Islamic State supporter changes plea to admit encouraging jihadis to attack Prince George at school
From the Telegraph
An Islamic State supporter who called for an attack on Prince George has been warned he could face life behind bars after dramatically changing his plea during his trial.
Husnain Rashid had maintained his innocence throughout proceedings at Woolwich Crown Court, but on Thursday he changed tack and admitted a string of terror offences.
Nearly two weeks into his trial, prosecutor Annabel Darlow said: "The defendant has asked to be re-indicted on counts one to four." He then had three counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts and one count of encouraging terrorism put to him - and pleaded guilty to each.
Judge Andrew Lees told him that the trial had heard the "most disturbing allegations", adding: "It is inevitable that you will receive a very lengthy prison sentence and there will be a consideration of a life prison sentence."
He will be sentenced on June 28.
