Typical right wing innuendo laced rhetoric. The WOMAN is 19 years old. She is an adult. Family protective services would not be involved. Asking where MSNBC commentators and NOW were on this issue is pathetic.
Sharia law had nothing to do with this case. Any outrage should be directed at the district attorney's office for filing disorderly conduct and false imprisonment charges instead of charging attempted murder. Probation is within sentencing guidelines for disorderly conduct and false imprisonment. Also, the woman is recanting her story (probably under duress, but she is recanting.)
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a prominent American Muslim leader, spoke about the need for everyone to respect the American legal system. Honor killings, child marriage, forced marriage, and physical abuse have no place in our society, and, when people refuse to follow our laws, they must be treated the same as every other American.

Aw yes, more innuendo and leading questions. Typical.
Odd there was no story in the Arizona Republic
The age of consent in Arizona is 18. However there exist in the legislation defenses to prosecution if the defendant is close in age to the "victim" or a spouse of the "victim". Note: these are not close-in-age exceptions but defenses in court. Arizona Revised Statute 13-1405(A)
B. It is a defense to a prosecution pursuant to sections 13-1404 and 13-1405 in which the victim's lack of consent is based on incapacity to consent because the victim was fifteen, sixteen or seventeen years of age if at the time the defendant engaged in the conduct constituting the offence the defendant did not know and could not reasonably have known the age of the victim.
D. It is a defense to a prosecution pursuant to section 13-1404 or 13-1405 that the person was the spouse (legally married AND cohabiting) of the other person at the time of commission of the act...
F. It is a defense to a prosecution pursuant to section 13-1405 if the victim is fifteen, sixteen or seventeen years of age, the defendant is under nineteen years of age or attending high school and is no more than twenty-four months older than the victim and the conduct is consensual.
Liberals can always find excuse to ignore that which they choose!
So you agree with the D.A. that charges of disorderly conduct and false imprisonment were the correct crimes to prosecute?
