A HOME-GROWN terrorist who was committed to violent jihad was jailed this afternoon.
Justice Bernard Bongiorno sentenced Shane Kent to five years on two counts, with a minimum of three years, nine months, the Herald Sun reports.
He has already spent 1115 days in custody.
Justice Bongiorno told Kent, 32, in sentencing: "I am not prepared to accept on the material proferred, that he (Kent) has abandoned the cause of violent jihad.
"There is no admissable evidence of his having done so, or of his being genuinely contrite for what he did."
Kent, of Campbellfield, was sentenced to four-and-a-half years to being a member of a terrorist organisation, and two-and-a-half years on a second charge of recklessly making a document connected with preparing a terrorist act, but the two will be served partially concurrently.
