UPDATE: Hearing For Texas Terror Suspects Delayed
Updated: Friday, June 20 2014, 10:59 AM CDT
UPDATE: The U.S. Attorney's Office says the two suspects charged with attempting to support terrorists will not be in court on Friday. The hearing will be rescheduled for a later date.
On Friday afternoon, two Texas men arrested for allegedly having ties to terrorism will make their first court appearance. Rahatul Ashikim Khan and Michael Wolfe are accused of supporting terrorists.
Right now, both men are in federal custody. On Friday, they will appear in front of a federal judge for the first time at a detention hearing in Austin. These are two separate cases, both with very serious charges. Khan and Wolfe are accused of providing material support to terrorists. They face up to 15 years in federal prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
Records show the men to be religious extremists trying to help insurgent groups abroad. Federal agents took Wolfe into custody in Houston on Tuesday as he was boarding a plane. They believe he was on his way to Syria. Khan was arrested at his Round Rock home Tuesday. He is a full-time student at UT.
"I was informed about it through the FBI, and the FBI is still ongoing with their investigation and asked us not to comment further on it," said Bill Powers, UT President, on Thursday. "We're certainly following it very closely and working with the FBI."
Neither the FBI nor the U.S. Attorney offices are commenting. Wolfe and Khan's detention hearings are set for 2:30 p.m. Friday at the federal courthouse in downtown Austin. KEYE TV will be there and bring you all updates on KEYETV.com and social media.
