Three members of an Iraqi family were sentenced Tuesday afternoon for their roles in the beating and imprisonment of a 19-year-old woman who refused an arranged marriage.

Mohammed Altameemi, 45, Yusra Farhan, 50, and Tabarak Altameemi, 18, were sentenced by Judge Joseph Kreamer in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Mohammed Altameemi was ordered to two years of supervised probation with domestic violence terms for disorderly conduct.

Yusra Farhan was sentenced to two years of supervised probation with domestic violence terms for unlawful imprisonment.

Tabarak Altameemi was sentenced to two years of supervised probation with domestic violence terms for assault.

Prosecutors maintained that the father, mother and sister of Aiya Altameemi beat the 19-year-old in February for talking with another man.

Mohammed Altameemi pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, Farhan pleaded guilty to unlawful imprisonment; and, Tabarak Altameemi pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault. All entered their pleas on Oct. 5.

The three defendants were arrested in March.
