COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man who admitted he plotted attacks on military members in the U.S. after receiving training in Syria is scheduled to be sentenced. Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud (ab-dee-RAH'-mahn shayk moh-HAH'-mud) is set to be sentenced Friday in federal court in Columbus. Mohamud's attorney argues a lengthy prison term isn't necessary. Prosecutors want a 23-year sentence. Mohamud previously pleaded guilty to terrorism charges.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An ex-treasure hunter jailed on contempt-of-court charges is ready to argue before an Ohio judge why his imprisonment should be ended. Federal Judge Algenon Marbley has scheduled a hearing for Friday. Marbley has held Tommy Thompson in contempt since December 2015 for violating terms of a plea deal by refusing to respond to questions about the location of 500 missing gold coins. Thompson's attorney argues federal law prohibits holding someone under such conditions for longer than 18 months.

Ohio's five other Mid-American Conference schools sell beer at football games.
