Rasmieh Odeh Guilty of Naturalization Fraud
Rasmieh Odeh, a Palestinian woman convicted of killing two college students in a 1969 Jerusalem grocery store bombing, faces possible prison time and eventual deportation from the United States after being convicted Monday of naturalization fraud.
A federal jury in Detroit deliberated about two hours before convicting the 67-year-old Odeh. The charges stem from her failure to disclose to U.S. immigration authorities her conviction and life prison sentence in Israel for a series of Jerusalem bombings that killed two people.
U.S. District Judge Gershwin A. Drain told jurors the "verdict is a fair and reasonable one based on the evidence that came in," the Associated Press reports.
