The trial date for the former leader of the Orlando office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Ahmad Saleem, has been set. However, before any of the evidence in the case had a chance to be brought to light, one of the two charges against him was dropped. Saleem has been out of jail since shortly after he was arrested in May. The big question is will he be back behind bars?
On May 20, 2015, Ahmad Abrar Saleem was arrested during a sex sting operation held in Clermont, Florida, where he had traveled to have illegal intercourse with someone who he believed to be a twelve-year-old girl. When news broke that Saleem had been involved, word spread quickly and the story went viral. It had nothing to do with who he was personally; it had everything to do with who he represented.
