Pirate Suspect to be Charged as Adult in New York

The New York Times - B Weiser -[In the case of ...] Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse, a Somali who speaks no English...

[...] a New York police detective, Frederick Galloway, who went to Africa as part of an investigative team, told the judge that Mr. Muse [the father of the defendant], after giving different ages, said he had been untruthful, apologized and said he [his son] was “between 18 and 19.”

“He also said, ‘I’m sorry for lying to you,’ ” Detective Galloway testified. “He said, ‘When I pray again, I’ll ask Allah to forgive me for lying to you, and I won’t lie to you again.’ ”

[Well- that's some pretty good detective work, if likely to be made by a typically lying cop who would just as quickly lie to get his cop-buddies out of a tight squeeze even if theirs was a criminal affair. Of course the judge-hole let in this suspect evidence.]
