Ali Asad Chandia will be back in District Court on April 25 in his continued quest for justice following his conviction in 2006 on charges of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. The popular third-grade teacher from the Al-Huda School in College Park, Maryland, will appear before Judge Claude Hilton, this time to more fully challenge the application of the terrorism enhancement to his sentence. The original 15-year sentence was challenged by Ali Asad in a formal appeal argued before the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond on October 30, 2007. At issue at the hearing will be whether the evidence provided by the government warrants the application of the terrorism enhancement to the sentence.
