The federal indictment against Everitt Aaron Jameson lists two charges -- attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and distribution of information relating to destructive devices.

Each charge carries a penalty of 20 years behind bars and a quarter million dollar fine.

The 26-year-old, who once trained as a Marine, reportedly told undercover FBI agents he wanted to attack Pier 39 on Christmas Day, as a show of support for ISIS.

According to a handwritten letter obtained by the FBI, the Modesto man also referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon.

Jameson is currently in custody and is due in court Friday.
