Aberdeen, SD: Somali refugee found guilty of sexual assault in December is supposed to be sentenced today
Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 30, 2017
Udate: Reader Elena found this tiny mention in the local news, rescheduled for April 10th.
Liban Mohamed was found guilty in December of attempted sexual assault of a special needs woman. He was arrested last July after reportedly only being in the country for one week.
We are waiting to hear whether his sentencing will go ahead today as originally scheduled. (No mugshot is available!)
Here is my story from January 5th:
If you missed the story yesterday, go here, to learn about how an arrest, an indictment and a guilty verdict all went missing from local news reports about a Somali refugee who had been in the country one week before his July encounter with a special-needs woman.
Here is a recap and an update from Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:
A South Dakota newspaper that failed to report on the case of a Somali man convicted of trying to molest a severely handicapped woman, changed gears Wednesday after being outed by WND and decided to publish a story about the crime.
There are still many outstanding questions. Lutheran Social Services, the refugee contractor in SD, has never indicated whether that agency resettled the now convicted Somali refugee. We are all still puzzled about how he was able to be wandering around an Aberdeen neighborhood after only a few days in the country. The only resettlement city in South Dakota now is in Sioux Falls (a couple hundred miles away) since reportedly the office in Huron has been closed for new resettlement.
Mohammed was reportedly scheduled to go to work for Dem Kota Ranch beef.
Meanwhile be sure to see that the Huffington Post is going after WND’s Leo Hohmann today.

P.S. I have about 5 or 6 other Somali stories I need to post. Hope to get to them soon, but needless to say things are crazy. I apologize to all who are trying to reach me, but it is just me here!
