CENTENNIAL-A Saudi national serving prison time for sexually abusing his housekeeper will not be allowed to return to his homeland.

Homaidan Al-Turki was convicted of 12 counts of criminal sexual contact and is serving eight years to life. He was convicted in 2006 of assaulting a housekeeper in Aurora and keeping her as a virtual slave.

Al-Turki tried to convince the judge to let him serve the remainder of his time in Saudi Arabia.

After witnesses testified in October that al-Turki has been refusing sex offender treatment, a judge denied the request in a recent order.

People testifying for al-Turki told the court his family is suffering and treatment would be more effective in Saudi Arabia among family and friends.

The judge's order says al-Turki is currently in Federal custody in Arizona.
