Chuckie Wants US Torture Charge Dropped
Chuckie Taylor, son of Charles, who's currently in US custody for passport fraud:
MIAMI - The son of Liberia's former president Charles Taylor on Monday asked a Miami judge to drop charges that he tortured people when he served as anti-terror chief in the West African nation.
Judge William Turnoff ended the hearing without handing down a decision on whether Charles "Chuckie" Taylor would need to stand trial on torture charges.
Taylor, 29, in December became the first person to be charged in the United States for acts of torture outside the country.
