One of the nine men sentenced in November 2016 on charges of conspiracy to aid ISIS has had his term in a halfway house extended by 15 days after admitting to gambling on a soccer game and collecting the winnings.

Court records show Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame admitted to gambling on recent soccer games with another resident. Gambling is prohibited at a residential re-entry center.
