A jury in Boise got the case in the trial of a Saudi Arabian graduate student accused of using his Internet expertise to rally support for terrorism.
The jury of four men and eight women met for 15 minutes before retiring for the evening. Deliberations were scheduled to begin in earnest today.
Prosecutors have argued that Sami Omar Al-Hussayen, 34, turned websites of the Islamic Assembly of North America into an Internet network that provided information to foster terrorism, particularly in the Middle East and Chechnya. Jurors heard seven weeks of testimony in the case.
