Chesser, of Bristow, Va., is serving 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to threatening the creators of the irreverent "South Park" cartoon series for perceived insults to the prophet Muhammad, and for trying to travel to Somalia to join the al-Shabab terrorist group.

Begolly, like Chesser, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Virginia on charges he used the online forum to encourage terrorist attacks on public buildings and military facilities, transportation systems, cellphone towers, water plants, synagogues, Jewish schools and other targets in the United States.

The charges were announced months after the FBI arrested Begolly in western Pennsylvania. Begolly was living with his father in Mayport, about 60 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
