Season 1 Episode 10

Episode 10: Fallout
The last episode covered Sentencing Day, March 8, 2007 and brought you readings of support letters and editorials from community members, newspapers, and the defendants themselves. All were trying to get the judge to give Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain lenient sentences, instead of the 30 years to life that was recommended by federal guidelines.
The Bureau of prisons is required to place a prisoner no more than 500 miles from home so that the family can visit. But this did not happen with either Mohammed or Yassin.
Sentencing day will show you how doubts about both the case and the tactics remained in the minds of nearly everyone. An article by the Times Union reporter who covered the case actually provided new information about the case! The FBI’s press release and press conference continue to raise questions about their guilt or innocence.
