Noor Salman Trial: Verdict Possible Next Week

Noor Salman's lawyers may take a step that could give the woman back her freedom.  

Salman, 31, is on trial in federal court for aiding and abetting her husband and with obstruction of justice, for lying to federal agents. She's pleaded not guilty. If convicted, she could get life in prison.

Prosecutors rested their case against the Orlando nightclub shooter's widow on Thursday, but before making their case, Salman's lawyers planned to file a motion for acquittal.  

They argued Thursday that Salman should get a bond now. Late Thursday, her attorneys filed the motion to dismiss the case.

They claim prosecutors did not prove their case that Salman helped Omar Mateen plan the attack on the Pulse nightclub two years ago.

A verdict is possible sometime next week.
