Sentence of Rafic M. Labboun
On July 19, 2010, Judge Ronald M. Whyte sentenced Rafic M. Labboun to 27 months of imprisonment in a Federal jail followed by three years of probation. Judge Whyte also ordered the convicted felon to pay $102,000.00 in restitutions to the banks which he had defrauded.
Labboun brought with him to the San Jose Federal courtroom a large mob of followers, including Khomeinists from Shia Association of Bay Area (Saba Center), to demonstrate that he does not lack local support. Once Judge Whyte pronounced the sentence, two Labboun female supporters started sobbing... Labboun was taken into custody immediately thereafter.
