BRIDGEPORT, CT (AP) -

A federal judge has postponed a bail hearing for a man charged with firing a rifle at a Connecticut mosque to allow his lawyer more time to prepare.

Ted Hakey Jr. is charged with a federal hate crime and detained without bail in connection with the shooting at Baitul Aman Mosque in Meriden following the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.

No one was inside the mosque, which is next to Hakey's home, when four bullets struck it.

Hakey's bail hearing began Dec. 21 and was to resume Dec. 28, but a judge postponed it to Jan. 4 at the request of Hakey's attorney, Jeffrey Cohen.

Cohen says he needs time to respond to prosecutors' claims that Hakey is too dangerous to be granted bail.
