Jury debates on Iraqi charged in rape case

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Jurors are set to resume deliberations Thursday on whether a former translator for the U.S. Marines was an accessory to a sex assault in Colorado Springs.

Yasir Jabbar Jasim is among five Iraqi men charged after a July attack on an unconscious woman. He is accused of cleaning up blood and lying.

The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/XW61Jn) that among other defendants, Ali Mohammed Hasan Al Juboori has pleaded guilty to making false statements. Sarmad Fadhi Mohammed awaits trial on allegations he forced oral sex. Mustafa Al Feraji is charged with being an accessory.

Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, who helped U.S. soldiers hunt insurgents in Iraq, is accused of violating the woman. The Colorado Supreme Court is reviewing whether a judge correctly tossed evidence against him due to improper questioning by police.
