Episode 7: The Trial Part 2 – The Defense

This is the second episode of our three-part mini-series of The Trial of Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain, who were caught up in an FBI sting operation from 2003-2004. Last time we covered the prosecution’s case, now it’s the defense’s turn. We talk about the judge’s targeting instruction. The judge said there were “good and valid reasons” to target Yassin Aref.  How can anyone get a fair trial when the judge says there are “good and valid reasons” to target the defendant?
