COLUMBUS, Ohio — A federal judge has rescheduled sentencing for an Ohio man convicted of trying to help the Islamic State group.

U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus on Tuesday in Columbus rescheduled Aaron Daniels' sentencing from Thursday to July 6.

Daniels pleaded guilty last July to a charge accusing him of attempting to travel to Libya to join the group.

Authorities say Daniels wired $250 to an Islamic State operative in January 2016 and told an undercover informant that he was interested in traveling to commit violence overseas.

The 21-year-old Daniels expressed remorse last year for his actions. His attorney is seeking a reduced sentence of two years, citing Daniels' mental illness and acknowledgement he did wrong.

The government wants a sentence of at least 15 years.
