“But he also continued to deny he abused his housekeeper and admitted he hasn’t attended sex offender therapy.”
The officials who tried him don’t know the first foggiest thing about Islam, and so they likely didn’t know to ask al-Turki whether he was denying that he had kept his housekeeper as a sex slave, or just denying that he abused her. This is a key distinction that they almost certainly didn’t think to make, because they don’t know that the Qur’an allows for the sexual enslavement of Infidel women (cf. 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30).
In light of that, Al-Turki likely thinks he has done nothing wrong while not denying the facts of the case. This is clear from the fact that at his sentencing, Al-Turki refused to apologize for “things I did not do and for crimes I did not commit.” He told the judge: “The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors. Attacking traditional Muslim behaviors was the focal point of the prosecution.” He wants to be returned to Saudi Arabia because what he did isn’t a crime there. He wouldn’t serve any more time.
“Saudi sex offender seeks release on parole while continuing to deny guilt,” by Kirk Mitchell, Denver Post, May 2, 2017:
A Saudi sex offender pleaded Tuesday with a Colorado Parole Board member, asking to be released for the sake of his suffering children. But he also continued to deny he abused his housekeeper and admitted he hasn’t attended sex offender therapy.
“I feel like (his children) have been in prison with me for the last 12 years,” Homaidan al-Turki said in a telephonic parole hearing Tuesday morning. “My imprisonment has affected my family. The growth of my children has been unnatural. They have undergone trauma.”
But parole board member Brandon Mathews kept bringing al-Turki back to the topic of his treatment and rehabilitation, questioning why the Colorado convict, who is currently being held in a federal prison in Pennsylvania, hasn’t enrolled in required programming for sex offenders.
Al-Turki, whose name came up as a person of interest in connection with the 2013 murder of former prisons chief Tom Clements, is serving a term of eight years to life on numerous felony counts of sexual contact and a misdemeanor count of false imprisonment….
Al-Turki told Mathews that he has repeatedly asked to be admitted into a sex offender treatment program but he has been rejected each time.
Mathews replied that al-Turki was rejected for treatment because he has been in denial.
Al-Turki continues to maintain his innocence. He has two appeals in progress, including one in which he is seeking standing before the U.S. Supreme Court. Al-Turki said he is a devout Muslim and it would violate his religion to speak with female therapists about sexual matters or to view nude pictures of women as required in treatment. He also said confessing to crimes he did not commit would be lying.
Al-Turki has repeatedly asked to be transferred to his native Saudi Arabia to complete his term. Al-Turki was considered a person of interest in the Clements murder. Clements wrote a March 12, 2013, letter to al-Turki announcing his transfer request was denied. Clements was murdered a week later. Investigators have worked to determine whether al-Turki hired and conspired with members of the prison gang 211 Crew to have Clements killed….
