    Active duty Soldier from Hawaii arrested for ties to ISIS

    An active duty Hawaii soldier has been arrested for alleged ties to the Islamic State terrorist group.

    FBI special agents and SWAT arrested Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, on Saturday evening at his Waipahu apartment.

    FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said Kang is with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks in Wahiawa.

    Officials said the suspect, who graduated from Kaiser High School, was the subject of a year-long investigation.

    He's set to make his first appearance in federal court Monday afternoon.

    I wonder what his specific connections were and why didn't they arrest him sooner?

    U.S. Soldier Who Kissed ISIS Flag Pleads Not Guilty To Supporting Militant Group

    Army Sergeant Ikaika Erik Kang was indicted last week on four counts of attempting to provide material support to ISIS. If found guilty, he could spend 80 years behind bars—20 years for each count.
    The prosecution against the 34-year-old alleges he pledged allegiance to ISIS and tried to pass classified military information to undercover agents he believed were members of the group.
    Hawaii soldier pleads not guilty to terror-related charges

    Last week, a federal grand jury indicted Army Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang with four counts of attempting to provide material support to the terror group.

    If found guilty, Kang could spend up to 20 years behind bars for each count.

    The 34-year-old has been in federal custody since his July 8 arrest.

    His attorney said Kang is competent to stand trial. A trial date has been set for Sept. 19.

    Security Measures Needed for Soldier's Terrorism Case

    Trial for a Hawaii-based Army soldier accused of attempting to support the Islamic State group won't happen until at least late next year.

    That's because of the amount of classified information prosecutors say the case involves.
