Pulse Massacre Gunman’s Widow Noor Salman Acquitted by Florida Jury!

Noor Salman, the widow of Pulse nightclub terrorist Omar Mateen, was acquitted today by a Florida jury.

Omar Mateen murdered 49 people at a gay club in Orlando, Florida in the 2016 attack.

USA Today reported:

A Florida jury has acquitted the widow of the gunman in the Pulse nightclub massacre of charges that she helped her husband plan the bloody attack in Orlando that killed 49 people.

The 12-person jury returned the verdict Friday in the case of Noor Salman, 31, after two days of deliberations.

Salman cried after the verdict was read, looking back at her family as she left the courtroom. Her cousin and two uncles sobbed and hugged each other as the verdict was read, the Associated Press reports.

Salman was charged with providing material support to the Islamic State and with obstructing justice. She could have faced life in prison if convicted.

Defense attorneys had described Salman as a simple woman with a low IQ who was abused by her husband, and who didn’t know of his plans because he concealed much of his life from her.
