Bill Aossey, 74, founder of Midamar, was sentenced in federal court Thursday morning on federal fraud charges. The sentence also calls for three years of supervision after release and a $60,000 fine.

During the hearing the judge repeatedly scolded Aossey for committing perjury during his trial in court last year.

Aossey’s conviction originally called for a 9-11 year sentence. The judge cut the sentence due to Aossey’s age of 74 and the unlikeliness that he would commit another offense.

Aossey was convicted by a jury on 15 of 19 federal charges last July involving the sale of misbranded “halal” beef products and falsifying export documents and certificates. Halal meat is specially slaughtered to meat Islamic religious standards.

Judge Linda Reade delayed sentencing at an earlier hearing to read over arguments.

The Aossey family has a rich legacy in Cedar Rapids. Aossey, Sr. father helped establish the Mother Mosque in the early 1900s, which is one of the oldest standing Mosques in North America.


In a separate case involving Aossey’s Midamar, 4 Muslims arrested for smuggling guns to Syria in halal food container.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
