Three Florida men were sentenced to prison on Wednesday for their roles in collaborating to provide material support to ISIS, the Department of Justice announced this week.

The trio is accused of supporting ISIS and jihad and their terrorist acts, and practicing firing weapons prior to Hubbard’s move to Syria.

Ex-Marine Gregory Hubbard, also known as “Jibreel,” 54, of West Palm Beach, was arrested on July 21, 2016, at Miami International Airport where he had a scheduled flight to Berlin, Germany, and then to Syria, to join ISIS.

Dayne Antani Christian, also known as “Shakur,” 33, of Lake Park, and Darren Arness Jackson, also known as “Daoud,” 53, of West Palm Beach, pleaded guilty in 2017 for their roles in the conspiracy.
