Legal technicalities lead US judge to dismiss charges against Muslim extremists who were training children to carry out school shootings

A judge in the state of New Mexico has dismissed all charges against three suspects charged in connection to a compound where Muslim extremists were allegedly training children to carry out school shootings.

It was reported in early August that Siraj ibn Wahhaj, the son of a prominent New York City imam, was arrested at a “filthy” compound in New Mexico, where 11 children found there had been trained in how to shoot up schools. Ibn Wahhaj, 39, and four other adults were arrested and charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse. The five adults and the eleven children were found at the “filthy” makeshift compound in Taos County, near the border with Colorado.

KSATnews said that the judge has dismissed all charges against three out of the five suspects in the New Mexico compound case.

District Judge Emilio Chavez on on August 29 dismissed charges, ruling that authorities violated the state’s ’10-day rule. The report added, “Child abuse charges against Lucas Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj were dropped because prosecutors missed the 10-day limit for an evidentiary hearing to establish probable cause.”

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Jany Leveille still face charges. Police found nearly a dozen starving children at the compound. Further, the body of a missing 3-year-old boy were also found on the property.Follow us on Social Media
