Reports of crimes committed by Afghan refugees brought to Fort McCoy have led to criminal charges against two men.
Currently, over 12,700 Afghan evacuees are staying at Fort McCoy.
Mohammad Imaad is accused of assaulting his wife and trying to strangle her on September 7th.
The other man, 20-year-old Bahrullah Noori, is suspected of sexual acts with girls under the age of 16.
The crimes allegedly happened at the area Army base where thousands of people fleeing Afghanistan are being housed temporarily.
The men appeared in federal court on previous charges last week, and are now in the Dane County jail awaiting a new hearing today before a federal judge in Madison.
Noori could get 30 years to life in prison if he’s convicted of sexual assault with use of force. Imaad could be sentenced to 10 years if he’s found guilty of attacking his wife.
