Vegas jury begins hearing Saudi airman’s rape case

AP, LAS VEGAS

Other would-be witnesses left the US earlier this year and Chairez lost a bid to have them testify by Internet hookup from Saudi Arabia. Clark County District Court Judge Stefany Miley ruled that because the men are now abroad, they were ineligible to testify because they were out of reach of court rules and penalties for perjury.

Alotaibi rejected a plea deal in August to avoid trial and plead guilty to attempted sexual assault and attempted lewdness charges that could have gotten him probation or a prison sentence ranging from eight to 80 years.
