JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville teen indicted on charges of training and recruiting locally in support of a branch of al-Qaeda pleaded not guilty in court Monday.

Action News was in the federal courtroom today as 19-year-old Shelton Bell's attorney entered the plea on his behalf.

Federal investigators say Bell was planning a violent attack overseas which he called a jihad. They say he even vandalized an Arlington cemetery as part of his local recruitment efforts for that attack.

He is being held on no bail for these charges, but was already in the Duval County Jail for other charges when this indictment came down.

His trial is now set for early October.
