Waheba Issa Dais, a Wisconsin mother of seven children, pleaded guilty Monday to supporting the terror group ISIS.

What are the details?

According to WITI-TV, Milwaukee-area resident Dais attempted to aid the Islamic State by disseminating information on crafting explosives and biological weapons. Reports also revealed that Dais attempted to recruit people to carry out attacks.

In March, Dais pleaded not guilty to two counts of providing material support to terrorists. Prosecutors dropped one of the charges in exchange for Dais' guilty plea, WITI reported.

Reports revealed that Dais purportedly hacked social media accounts to collaborate with purported members of ISIS to plan potential attacks.

"These cases demonstrate the continuing and evolving terrorism threat posed by foreign terrorism organizations," said Matthew Krueger, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Dais faces up to 20 years in prison in connection to the charges. Her sentencing is set for Sept. 12.

Anything else?

Authorities charged a second suspect in the Milwaukee area with similar charges.

Yosvany Padilla-Conde also pleaded guilty, according to the outlet.

Court documents revealed that Dais and Padilla-Conde did not know one another or work together, WITI said.

Padilla-Conde, who is a Cuban national, reportedly attempted to travel to the Middle East to join the ranks of ISIS.

FBI acting special agent in charge Michelle Sutphin said, "People like Padilla-Conde and Dais pose significant threats to Americans, both here in the U.S. and abroad."

Padilla-Conde could also spend up to 20 years in prison in connection with the crimes.
