Coloroado jurisprudence in action Coloroado jurisprudence in action

Sometimes it isn't all that bad when Colorado makes the national news. In this article in the NRO Corner: Oh, Those Moderate Saudis, a Saudi couple here who kept an Indonesian woman essentially as a slave have been convicted and sentenced as a result. I liked this:
At his sentencing proceeding, al-Turki declined to apologize because, he said, he was engaged in "traditional Muslim behaviors" and thus did not commit any crimes. The judge, engaging in traditional American judicial behaviors, aptly slammed him with a sentence of 27 years to life in jail.
However, the Saudis objected to this, and the State Department is flying the CO AG to Saudi Arabia to explain this to the Saudi king and the family of those convicted.
