Padilla guilty on all counts

Padilla070813

Jose Padilla, seated in the middle, and his co-defendants, Adham Amin Hassoun on the left and Kifah Wael Jayyousi on the right, were found guilty on all counts by a Miami jury in less than twelve hours of deliberation after a three month trial in which hundreds of pages of evidence were introduced.

There was little emotion shown as the verdicts were read by the Judge’s clerk. Jayyousi who had been out on bond hugged the defense lawyers before being taken into custody.  All three face life in prison when they are sentenced in December.

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
