Aurora terror suspect might be released on bail after 5 years in jail

DENVER-- A federal judge has ordered the release of an Aurora man suspected of providing material to a terrorist group in 2012.

Charges are still pending against Jamshid Muhtorov, who was arrested more than five years ago at Chicago O'Hare International Airport en route to Turkey.

On Monday, U.S. District Court Judge John Kane reviewed conditions for Muhtorov's release pending a review of his home on Thursday.

A second release hearing is scheduled for Thursday morning.

Muhtorov's court-appointed attorney, Warren Williamson, proposed conditions for his client's release.

Muhtorov will be required to wear an ankle monitor, avoid contact with witnesses to the case, report to a probation officer, and not use drugs, alcohol or the internet.

Muhtorov was arrested in 2012 carrying several iPhones, tablets and $3,000 in cash. FBI agents suspected Muhtorov and another man planned to bring the materials to the terrorist group Islamic Jihad Union.

Muhtorov filed a complaint against the GEO Aurora Detention Center for violating his right to a speedy trial.

U.S. Attorney Gregory Holloway told Kane that he plans to appeal the release.
