PHOENIX - It was originally supposed to be a sentencing for an Arizona man convicted of supporting the Islamic State, but the judge postponed it Tuesday morning.
Judge Susan Bolton agreed to give the defense until Nov. 9 to go over 850 pages of documents in Arabic that U.S. government prosecutors recently submitted as new evidence -- with the help of an interpreter and a computer expert.
Back in March, a jury found Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem guilty of supporting the Islamic State and plotting a terrorist attack last year in Garland, Texas.
The new documents show the communication between undercover FBI agents and two co-conspirators in that 2015 attack in suburban Dallas.
The motion for a new trial could still be denied.
A new tentative sentencing date is now set for Jan. 23.
