We have received confirmation from Younes wife regarding his pleading guilty, (we didn't want to post it until we knew for sure).
-"My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Younes had no choice but agree for pleading guilty offer to 3 charges.
They have pressed 8 charges on him which made a total scores of 40 years to life sentence.
The case is trap as usual, but this is the same method that many Muslim prisoners went through.
Wa hasbun Allahu wa ni3mal wakeel." -
Hundley (Younes lawyer) said the case against Morton [Yunus] presented free speech issues, but his client ultimately decided to take the plea the government offered rather than risk trial on more serious charges that could carry an even longer sentence.
"Certainly, this case had that question: at what point are you exercising free speech and at what point are you verging into prohibited speech of a threatening or inciting nature?" Hundley told POLITICO Wednesday. "That was something we obviously looked at very closely."
"If [Morton] had rejected the plea offer, he'd be facing substantially more than 15 years," Hundley said.
We urge you to make dua for Yunus and his family, also other Muslim Prisoners, offer support and raise awareness.
