The Latest on the Army Reserve officer charged for threatening Muslims worshippers at a North Carolina mosque (all times local):

4:12 p.m.

Members of a North Carolina mosque say the community has been on edge since an Army Reserve officer was arrested and accused of making death threats last month against its worshippers.

Muslim community member Uzma Khan said there have not been any other incidents since at the mosque in Raeford, but police have been present almost every day as a security measure. Khan says she's encouraged by support from law enforcement but saddened by its necessity.

Khan's is the daughter of a retired military chaplain, Mohammed Khan, who told authorities he was threatened at gunpoint during the incident.

Police arrested Russell Thomas Langford of Fayetteville on charges of ethnic intimidation, assault with a deadly weapon and others. Langford's attorney says the defense is still investigating and asks the state to proceed with a presumption of Langford's innocence.

Khan said the court should hold Langford to a strict standard because he committed to protecting American citizens when he joined the military.

1:20 p.m.

The lawyer for an Army Reserve officer who authorities say left bacon outside a North Carolina mosque and threatened to kill its members is asking the state to remember more than a decade of distinguished military service from his client.

Attorney Kelly Dawkins told media Wednesday that bronze star recipient Russell Thomas Langford of Fayetteville deserves "all the due process we can give him."

Langford appeared in Hoke County Court on Wednesday for the first time since posting bail last month.

Dawkins says the court modified the conditions of Langford's release to prohibit him from contacting any potential witnesses, possessing any firearms and going on the property of the mosque in Raeford.

Langford has been charged with ethnic intimidation, assault with a deadly weapon, going armed to the terror of the public, communicating threats, stalking and disorderly conduct.

His case has been continued to Aug. 17.

Raeford is about 20 miles southwest of Fayetteville.

A decorated Army Reserve officer who authorities say left bacon at a North Carolina mosque and threatened to kill its members is expected to appear in court for the first time since he posted bail last month.

Hoke County Court scheduled a hearing for Russell Thomas Langford of Fayetteville for Wednesday morning.

Witnesses say on that on June 9, Langford made death threats to members of the mosque about 20 miles southwest of Fayetteville and later attempted to run over one of its members in his vehicle.

Langford has been charged with ethnic intimidation, assault with a deadly weapon, going armed to the terror of the public, communicating threats, stalking and disorderly conduct.
