The FBI is expected to make more public corruption arrests stemming from a case that targeted a onetime top aide to former Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell, the New York Times reports. 

John H. Estey, 53, is expected to plead guilty to wire fraud in federal court Tuesday.

The investigation involves a phony company established by the FBI to root out public corruption in Harrisburg.

“I would anticipate that there are a lot of people who are nervous and looking over their shoulder right now, because they know they had conversations with John Estey,” said Jeffrey Lindy, a Philadelphia defense lawyer and a former prosecutor.

More charges are likely, legal experts said.

“You’re not going to set up a fake corporation and go to all the trouble just to take down one guy,” said L. George Parry, a Philadelphia defense lawyer who as a former prosecutor helped set up the fake businesses.

A Pennsylvania teenager accused of helping people travel to the Middle East to join ISIS was indicted Tuesday, Reuters reports. 

Jalil Ibn Aziz, 19, of Harrisburg, was charged with conspiring and attempting to provide material support to a militant group.

Investigators said Aziz used at least 57 Twitter accounts to show his support for violence against Americans and to spread ISIS propaganda. He also posted the names of U.S. military members as potential targets.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether he acted alone or was in contact with other extremists.
