Mom Locks Up & Beats Daughter For Talking To Boy, Gets Probation

Phoenix, AZ – Members of an Iraqi family who beat a teenage relative and padlocked her to a bed after she violated their traditional values by chatting to a male friend were spared jail time in a plea deal approved by a county judge on Tuesday.

According to NBC News, in exchange for a guilty plea, Yusra Farhan, 51, was sentenced to two years of probation on a charge of unlawful imprisonment of her daughter, 19-year-old Aiya Altameemi, at the family’s Phoenix home in February, court officials said.

Aiya Altameemi’s father, Mohammed Altameemi, also received two years of probation for disorderly conduct. The victim’s 18-year-old sister, Tabarak Altameemi, received the same sentence for assault, officials said.

Prosecutors said that the incident started when Aiya was spotted leaving her high school with a young man. After seeing her leave school with the boy, her father and his younger daughter Tabarak confronted the young woman.

Police said that Mohammed Altameemi became very angry and took her straight home, striking her several times. Her mother Farhan and sister Tabarak also admitted to tying her to a bed with a rope around her waist that was secured with a padlock. After being secured to the bed, they beat her, according to court records.

Farhan told police that she hit her daughter because she “was speaking to a male subject and her Iraq culture states a female is not allowed to be having contact with males because females are not allowed to have boyfriends,” court records said.

Aiya told school officials two days that “her family is trying to protect her and they want her to be a virgin for an arranged marriage,” according to court documents.

A county attorney spokesman declined to comment on the sentence.

Attorneys for Aiya Altameemi’s family members could not be reached for comment.

    So what's the difference between "getting jumped" by your family and "getting jumped" by gangs? Nothing! They committed a crime and need to be locked up.

    Khalid Wahab – I do sincerely hope this is a learning experience for the family. But that is irrelevant when one considers what this is for the victim. My hope is that this girl is taken away from this abusive family immediately, before more damage can be done. Whatever one's religious/cultural beliefs may be, it is not an excuse to break the law, especially if it involves abuse.

    Did anybody check these people and make sure they have legal papers to be in our country? I don"t see any protesters wanting to send them back , like they do the Mexican whom has more rights in these country beside the Native American.This country is real eager to except people from countries that have killed our American soldiers with open arms and its OK.Yet people that want to come here to work on jobs nobody else wants, everybody is wanting to send them back where they came from.Just wait until one of these suicide bombers blows up one of our malls and then lets see where the American mentallity is.

    That;s next. Don't worry. No matter how many people defend the Koran, it specifically states over and over and over again that the Infidel will be punished or killed. Almost every page says that the unbeliever is/should be/ or will be punished/stoned/killed/etc.

    Amazing…in a "Plea DEALl" approved by a county judge, Mom, Dad and a sister get 2-yrs of probation for pleading "Guilty". What the hell kind of a deal is that? This county judge seemed to be more concerned with being politically correct (to not offend these Iraqui muslims) than protecting the victim and allowing justice to be served. Hey Judge, it's illegal to beat children in America…period…end of discussion.
