Judge OKs transfer of a terrorist suspect from Chicago to new york

CHICAGO – A federal judge has OK’d the transfer of a suspect from Chicago to New York to face charges that he helped to raise money for militants to join the Islamic State group and other terrorist organization in Syria.

A U.S. court judge in Chicago placed an order Tuesday evening that allows the agents to transport the 32-year-old Dilshod Khusanov to a prison in Brooklyn, New York.

Authorities arrested the Uzbekistan-born truck driver at his Villa Park home outside Chicago in August on material support to terrorists charges. If convicted, he could face a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Data indicate Khusanov has not yet entered a plea. The government court filings say that a status hearing will be held for him in New York, later this week. Others are already faced similar charges in New York.
