U.S. Attorney Kristy Parker is quoted in the report as stating to jurors that the victims were attacked, “in the most offensive way, in a way that religiously degraded them.”
The charges brought against the16 defendants include conspiracy to commit a hate crime linked to the beard cutting attacks on the victims. If convicted, they could be sentenced to up to life in prison.
