The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) hailed a King County jury's decision finding Naveed Haq guilty of all eight counts in the 2006 shootings at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, in a statement released overnight Tuesday. Pamela Schwartz, Chair of ADL's Pacific Northwest Region, and Hilary Bernstein, ADL, said in the statement, "This verdict sends a message that there will be consequences for those who act out on their bigotry and anti-Semitism, and that a crime of this magnitude cannot go unanswered in King County or anywhere else." The League applauded the King County prosecutor's office for its efforts in pursuing charges against Haq, who now faces a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole for the July 26, 2006 shootings, which left one woman dead and another five seriously injured.
