Rana in a state of shock, says his attorney
Chicago: Pakistani-Canadian Tahawwur
Hussain Rana and his family are in a "state of shock" after the jury found him guilty on two counts of terrorism related charges that could possibly result in a maximum imprisonment of 30 years.
"I think, he is in shock," Charles Swift, Rana`s
attorney, told reporters at a news conference soon after the
12-member jury announced its verdict that Rana was found
guilty of conspiracy to the terrorist plot in Denmark and
providing material support to Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba.
"He (Rana) is obviously very disappointed," Swift
said when asked about Rana`s reaction to the verdict.
Rana in fact looked very tense when he was brought to the court room minutes before the judge was to announce the
verdict delivered by the jury following more than 12 hours of
intensive deliberations spread over two days.
The trial itself went on for nearly three weeks.
Family members of Rana, including his wife, the two
daughters and his mother-in-law were present in the court room
at the time of the verdict. They also looked tense and were seen weeping as the verdict was announced.
"We told him (Rana) that this was a step that was a
possibility. The (Rana) family is dealing with this as best
they can," Swift said.
