Saudi man moved to federal prison in US
Denver: A Saudi man convicted of sexual assaulting his housekeeper has been moved from a US state prison to a federal prison.
A prison spokesman confirmed that Homaidan al-Turki was on Friday moved to Federal Correction Institution Englewood in Colorado.
One of al-Turki`s lawyers says he was told the state wanted al-Turki to finish out his sentence in federal prison because of unspecified security concerns. It was unclear whether the low-security Federal Correction Institution was just a stopover on the way to another prison.
Al-Turki`s request to serve out his sentence in Saudi Arabia had been denied.
