TAMPA - The family of Youssef Megahed has hired an Atlanta lawyer to represent him in his fight against deportation on terrorism charges.
"I believe they're railroading this guy," said Charles H. Kuck, who said he is taking the case for free. "He's innocent. It's not just that he's not guilty. This kid is innocent."
Megahed was arrested by immigration agents April 6, three days after a federal jury acquitted him of explosives charges. Born in Egypt, Megahed, 23, has lived in the United States with his family since he was a child and had a pending application for citizenship.
Kuck's Web site lists him as national president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. (More)
