The Supreme Court won't hear an appeal from a Saudi Arabian citizen who blamed anti-Muslim sentiment for his conviction for keeping his housekeeper a virtual slave.
The high court on Monday turned away an appeal from Homaidan Al-Turki. He was convicted of false imprisonment, conspiracy, criminal extortion, theft and unlawful sexual contact.
Al-Turki was convicted of sexually abusing his Indonesian housekeeper and paying her less than $2 per day.
He complained that he wasn't allowed to question a potential juror about potential anti-Muslim sentiment.
