Saudi Arabia seeks return of Saudi man convicted of sexually assaulting housekeeper
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, October 24, 2013 12:54 PM EDT
Saudi Arabia is seeking the return of a Saudi national serving an eight-year Colorado prison sentence for sexually assaulting his housekeeper and treating her as a virtual slave.
Colorado officials have denied al-Turki's request to serve out his sentence in Saudi Arabia because he's refused to undergo sex offender treatment.
Fahed Al-Rawaf of the Saudi embassy in Washington asked the court to release al-Turki for more appropriate treatment at home.
Al-Turki's brother also made an emotional appeal for a return to Saudi Arabia.
