Sexual Assault Slave Case - Indeterminate Sentence

A man convicted of sexual assault on his maid had his sentence reduced from 28 years to life, to 8 years to life in an Arapahoe County, Colorado court recently. This story was reported in a CBS Denver 4 News release.

Homaida Al-Turki, a Saudi-Arabia citizen, was accused and convicted on 12 counts of sexual assault related to keeping his maid as a sex slave in his Aurora, Colorado home.  The reduction in sentence was said to be ordered because Mr. Al-Turki, who was incarcerated at a Limon, Colorado facility for the past five years, displayed good behavior, and also due implications from a recent Colorado Supreme Court ruling in a case unrelated to Mr. Al-Turki.

It is important to note that Mr. Al-Turki still faces an indeterminate sentence.  Indeterminate sentencing in Colorado means that a defendant may be kept for his entire life, regardless of his minimum sentence.  So, the practice effect is that if the parole board desires to keep Mr. Al-Turki in the custody of the Colorado Department of Corrections forever, they can. In effect, the sentence reduction only impacts the minimum sentence this defendant must serve, not the maximum.  Indeterminate sentences in Colorado only come into play with Colorado sex offenses.  Whether it is Douglas County, Weld County, Larimer County or another Colorado County, indeterminate sentences are devastating.

Sexual assault cases in Aurora (Arapahoe County) and other Colorado counties are some of the most complicated and life impacting legal challenges our office faces.  People accused or convicted of these offenses face separation from their families, job loss and damage to their reputations.  It is important for anyone involved in allegations of sexual crimes of any type to contact a qualified lawyer immediately.  You need a full-time criminal defense attorney.
