Al-Arian to Be Deported

AP: Ex-Professor in Terror Case to Be Deported---

WASHINGTON - Federal authorities have decided to deport a former Florida professor and longtime Palestinian rights activist after failing to convict him on charges he helped finance terrorist attacks in Israel.

Sami Al-Arian, who had met with U.S. presidents and other political leaders before his terrorism indictment in 2003, reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to a lesser charge and be deported, two lawyers familiar with the case said Friday. The arrangement requires the approval of a judge.

It was not clear where Al-Arian would be sent.
I can't believe Al-Arian wasn't found guilty. But, that doesn't mean he is innocent. At least we are doing this.
