Guess what CULT of TERROR is exercising "ITS" perceived Constitutional rights?
Detroit — A Detroit emergency room physician was charged Wednesday with mutilating the genitalia of two 7-year-old girls in what is believed to be the first case of its kind brought under federal law.
Jumana Nagarwala of Livonia was charged with female genital mutilation, a five-year felony, and transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, a 10-year felony, according to a complaint unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court.
“According to the complaint, despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” Acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Blanco said in a statement. “The Department of Justice is committed to stopping female genital mutilation in this country, and will use the full power of the law to ensure that no girls suffer such physical and emotional abuse.”
Nagarwala was arrested Wednesday night and arraigned in federal court Thursday.
She was dressed in a light-colored, matching dress and khimar, or veil that covered her head, neck and shoulders.
Magistrate Judge Anthony Patti scheduled a detention hearing in the case for 1 p.m. Monday. Her attorney and the government will argue over whether or not Nagarwala should be held in prison while she awaits trial.
In the meantime, Nagarwala will be held in jail until Monday's hearing.
Her attorney, Shannon Smith, who has offices in Bloomfield Hills, declined to comment on the case Thursday.
