The defense rests in trial of a former college professor charged with supporting Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Closing arguments are expected to begin next week. Sami Al-Arian and three co-defendants are charged with using Palestinian educational and charitable entities in Tampa as fundraising fronts for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a U.S. State Department-listed terrorist group blamed for more than 100 deaths.

Deseret News story out of Utah on the polygamous judge, who lives in a mostly polygamous community.
