A 22-year old Syrian immigrant was arrested and jailed after inappropriately have sexual contact with a 13-year old girl after only two months in the United States. The incident took place at a swimming pool in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Emad Hasso was arraigned in Lowell District Court on Friday and held on a $25,000 cash bail when he plead not guilty. He had to use an interpreter. His charge was one count of indecent assault and battery of a minor under the age of sixteen.
The Judge was Stacy Fortes and set bail despite the objections of the immigrants defense attorney. The judge said that because his only ties to this country are his family members he would be at a high risk to run and not return.
Prosecutor Sam Miller said the 13-year old girl was at the Raymond Lord Memorial Pool at the North Commej Park in Lowell when Hasso approached her and proceeded to ilegally touch her upper thigh. He then asked for her age. The girl said, too young for him, then walked away,
He followed her and repeated his behavior again. The young girl responded that she was, “a little kid, leave me alone.” Others t the pool including the lifeguard saw and intervened on the girls behalf.
His defense attorney, William Kittredge, indicated that Hasso receives support from an immigration non profit based out of Lowell and speaks little to no English. The mother of the victim was granted a harassment order.
Through his interpreter Hasso said,
“First of all, I don’t speak the language and I haven’t spoke to her.”
In addition to bail, the judge ordered Hasso have no contact with anyone under the age of sixteen with the exception of family members. As well, to stay away from the victim, her family, the pool, and facilities of the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
This is exactly what happens when the Obama administration allows anyone and everyone to come into our country. Now our youngest and most innocent Americans are paying the price for the administrations progressive ideological agenda.
