A federal jury found a Palestinian immigrant charged with immigration fraud guilty on Monday for failing to disclose her conviction and imprisonment in a Jerusalem supermarket bombing that killed two people.
Rasmieh Odeh is the final witness at her trial. Lawyers also are expected to give closing arguments Friday.
Rasmieh Odeh faces trial in a week, but her lawyers want more time. She failed to disclose convictions for bombings in Israel when she applied for U.S. citizenship in 2004.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh of Evergreen Park turned down a plea agreement last week in Detroit federal court and fired her attorney. Her new lawyer, Michael Deutsch, has made a career of representing political activists.
