Sentencing Set for Fayetteville's Arwah Jaber

SEPTEMBER 13, 2006 - Posted at 11:09 a.m. CDT

 

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - A sentencing date has been set in Fayetteville for Arwah Jaber.  Jaber is the former University of Arkansas graduate student who was convicted in June on lesser charges after being accused of trying to aid terrorists.

A jury found Jaber not guilty of attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization.  But the jury convicted him of obtaining his naturalization unlawfully, making false statements on passport and immigration applications, and two counts of making false statements on credit card applications.

Sentencing is set for November 18 before U.S. District Judge Jimm Larry Hendren.

Jaber faces maximum penalties ranging from five years to ten years.  He also could lose his naturalized citizenship.
