    (CNN) -- John Walker, the American captured while fighting alongside the Taliban in Afghanistan, arrived on U.S. soil Wednesday evening to face trial and a possible sentence of life in prison if convicted.

    Walker was accompanied by FBI agents aboard a military cargo plane from Kandahar, Afghanistan. He was turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service when the plane landed at Washington-Dulles International Airport in Virginia.

    Walker, 20, of California, was scheduled to make his first court appearance at 9 a.m. Thursday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia, court officials told CNN.

    He faces four criminal counts, including engaging in a conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals abroad and providing material support to terrorists. He could face life imprisonment if convicted.

    He has allegedly said that Osama bin Laden thanked him personally for joining the jihad.

    Walker was expected to be housed at the Alexandria Detention Center because there is no similar federal facility in northern Virginia.

    The same facility near the courthouse holds Zacarias Moussaoui, the first suspect charged in the September 11 terrorist attacks.
