Saudi Justice- Preacher Gets 8 Years For Raping and Killing 5-Year-Old daughter
So, it looks like Fayhan al-Ghamdi, the sick preacher who raped and brutally tortured his 5-year-old daughter because he thought she was no longer a virgin, didn't exactly walk free, as had previously been reported. But he's only getting a mere 8 years in jail and 800 lashes for the crimes which eventually led to the death of little Lama. His ex-wife is now getting $270,000 in "blood money", as per Shariah law, although she had wanted $2.7 million.
The little girls injuries included a broken back and ribs, a broken left arm, a crushed skull, severe bruising and burns, and according to social worker Randa al-Kaleeb working at the hospital, she had been raped "everywhere."
Ghamdi was a TV preacher.
According to Al-Arabiya, in Saudi Arabia where men reign supreme, murder and rape can garner a death sentence all except for fathers and husbands. Hubbies can kill their wives and dads can kill their kids and only face from 5 to 12 years. That's it.
