NEW YORK (AP) — A June trial has been scheduled for a British man accused of trying to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon.

The June 1 date was chosen Monday for Haroon Aswat.

Aswat pleaded not guilty to four terrorism charges after his extradition from Great Britain earlier this year.

U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest set the trial date at a brief hearing as Aswat sat quietly with his lawyers.

If convicted, he faces up to 35 years in prison.

Aswat is charged with conspiring with a radical cleric to set up a terrorist training camp in Bly, Oregon, 15 years ago. He was arrested in 2005 in Zambia.

His lawyer says Aswat takes anti-psychotic and antidepressant drugs daily. He has been treated for paranoid schizophrenia.
