Homaidan Al-Turki, the Colorado Saudi “student” denied in Arapahoe County District court that he enslaved the woman and said authorities were prejudiced against him.
“Your honor, I am not here to apologize, for I cannot apologize for things I did not do and for crimes I did not commit,” he told Judge Mark Hannen.
Al-Turki was convicted in July of 12 felony counts of unlawful sexual contact with use of force, one felony count of criminal extortion and one felony count of theft. He also was found guilty of two misdemeanors: false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit false imprisonment.
You know, he probably really believes he’s not lying. Sexual congress with a slave isn’t rape under Shariah law, is it? The victim of his affections is Muslim, so that makes it okay. Rape an infidel slave maid? No way. Why do you think they “hire” Muslims in the first place? That poor child was all of seventeen when she went left home in Indonesia to work for the Family from Hell.
The mills of God grind slowly, especially when they are being turned by the Feds. However, separate federal charges are to be heard in October, so Mr. Al-Turki’s goose is cooked. So to speak.
Arab News reports that the student’s attorney claims that his client is the victim of “cultural differences”:
the 37-year-old Saudi national, denied the charges and blamed anti-Muslim prejudice for the case against him. He said prosecutors persuaded the housekeeper to accuse him after they failed to build a case that he was a terrorist.
Al-Turki, who was studying for a doctoral degree at the University of Colorado, was convicted June 30 of unlawful sexual contact by use of force, theft and extortion. All are felonies.
He was also convicted on misdemeanor counts of false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit false imprisonment.
After the judge denied a motion for a new trial yesterday, defense attorney John Richilano said he would appeal the convictions. The lawyer argued that cultural differences were at the heart of the charges.
He’s got that right. The cultural differences between Colorado and Saudi Arabia are vast. But Mr. Al-Turki will have lots time to study this chasm of understanding as he grows old in prison. Well, he's a student, right? And they study, don't they? I mean, when he's not reading the Koran or praying. Or complaining.
No, he’s not out on bail. Are you kidding?
Now we just wait for October to see what he gets for charges of “forced labor, document servitude and harboring an immigrant.”
Not till October? Trick or treat, Mr. A…now’s there’s a cultural difference right there. And you get to dress up in prison stripes for Hallowe’en. I can’t wait to see what treats the feds have in store for you.
I love happy endings, don't you? Especially since the maid got to go home with $64,000.00. That ought to be enough to pay for some life-time therapy...[yes, that's a joke. I know she won't get much help. I even understand cultural differences sometimes].
Can't wait for the Fems to show up at Federal Court in October and demand that he be given the maximum sentence. I'll bet they'll pack the courtroom. Yes, that's what they'll do -- if they're not tied up demonstrating against Bushitler. Or attending that wonderful Bush assassination movie in Toronto. Gosh, what a full dance card, girls.
