We're getting our first look at the mugshot of Kim Ahn Vo, who is accused of providing cyber support to ISIS.

RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Kim Vo is in the Lincoln County Jail right and being held as a federal prisoner after being accused of having ties to ISIS.

News 12 talked to her parents tonight and they didn't want to be on camera. They tell us they haven't seen or talked to Vo since she was arrested.

They say the FBI showed up at their house Tuesday at 7 a.m. Investigators say they found evidence of her alleged crimes starting back in 2015 when she was just 16.

Her father said he doesn't believe Vo is capable of doing anything like this. He also says since the alleged crimes started when she was so young, she didn't know any better.

Vo will eventually be moved to New York to face charges.
