Episode 8: The Trial Part 3 – The Verdict and the Media

This is the third and final episode of our mini-series of The Trial of Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain, who were caught up in an FBI sting operation from 2003-2004.  Their trail was in October 2006.  We will discuss the verdict and all that came after it.

Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain received a great deal of support from the Albany, NY community, including fellow prisoners writing to the judge, editorials in the local daily papers, vigils at the court house, petitions and letters to the judge, all pleading for leniency.
