Lawyers representing the legal interest of Jucontee Thomas Smith Woewiyu who was found guilty by Jurors of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Court on Wednesday, July 4, are now looking at the possibility of challenging the verdict at the United States Supreme Court.
But, this would only happen, if Woweiyu were to authorize and perfect an Appeal Bond, which would then enable his lawyers to Appeal the Pennsylvania Court verdict.
They argue that many things went wrong during the trial.
Meanwhile, the verdict stands and the imposed sentence stands until otherwise ordered by a Higher Court in the United States of America.
Woewiyu was found guilty on 11 Counts related to War Crimes in Liberia and not found guilty of 5 Counts related to his false information provided in his Immigration Filing, the jury verdict disclosed.
During Sentencing, he risked being jailed for 110 Years and fined US$4 million.
He will be under House Arrest, which he has been subject to throughout his trial, until he is finally sentenced in October.
