Woman accused of supplying terrorists to remain jailed
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Bosnian immigrant accused of funneling money and military supplies to terror groups in Iraq and Syria will remain in federal custody, after her lawyer told a judge that he is seeking clarity on her immigration status.
Sedina Hodzic of St. Louis County is among six people named in a federal indictment earlier this month. Her husband and another St. Louis County man were also named, along with two people from Illinois and one from New York State.
At a detention hearing Wednesday, attorney Paul D'Agrosa told U.S. Magistrate David Noce that immigration authorities would take Hodzic into their custody if she is released.
After the hearing, D'Agrosa said he does not believe Hodzic is in the U.S. illegally, but he wants certainty before he seeks her release on bond.
