This should not be confused with the other Afghan sexual abuse of an underage minor at Fort McCoy which involved underage boys.
Bahrullah Noori, 20, is charged with one count of attempting to engage in a sex act with a minor by force and three counts of engaging in a sex act with a minor. One of the latter counts also alleges the use of force. Investigators say both of Noori’s alleged victims were under the age of 16.
The indictment specifically alleges that Noori touched the genitalia of one of his victims on three separate occasions while at Fort McCoy, an Army installation located approximately 100 miles northwest of Madison. One of the alleged assaults occurred in a barrack, while the other two took place in a bathroom.
This case involving Mohammed Tariq took place at Quantico Marine Corps Base.
A federal jury has convicted an Afghan refugee of sexually assaulting a 3-year-old girl at Quantico Marine Corps Base where he was housed.
Tariq was arrested in September at Camp Upshur in Quantico after Marines observed him fondling the girl, who was not related to him, above her clothes on her private parts.
According to court papers, Tariq tried to explain through interpreters that his conduct was acceptable in his culture. Efforts to have his statements suppressed were rejected by the judge.
Weren’t we supposed to be bringing “interpreters” to America? All these interpreters seem to need interpreters.
But he’s right, insofar that it is. The underlying question here is whether we want that culture in America. It’s unfortunate that we never got to ask that question because it’s only going to become a more pressing issue as we import more Afghans.
An Afghan evacuee has been charged with the rape of a woman in Missoula, Montana, the state’s governor said Thursday – and he called for the Biden administration to halt all refugee resettlements until assurances are made about the vetting process.
Do we have enough interpreters yet?
