Sheriff's office allows inmate tied to 'honor killing' case to wear hijab
Nadia Irsan was wearing an orange jail uniform, an olive green long-sleeved shirt and a black head scarf with a small patch of maroon when she sat down across from her lawyer Thursday in a glass-partitioned conference room in the Harris County Jail.
The 31-year-old observant Muslim, who will likely remain behind bars at least another year before she goes to trial on a charge of stalking, smiled at her attorney.
"It was a lot of colors," said lawyer Jackie Carpenter. "But that wasn't an issue. She finally looked comfortable."
