Attorney: Imam didn’t get fair trial in rape cases

A Muslim leader convicted of raping three young girls in Detroit is to be sentenced Wednesday in a case that features a constitutional debate over whether women who wear an Islamic face veil should be allowed to testify with it on.

The case deals with two potentially conflicting freedoms protected under the U.S. Constitution: freedom of religion and the right of accusers to confront witnesses in court.

He was extradited from Canada last year after being “acquitted” on multiple charges.
