This story just out: Islamic Scholar Guilty Of Inciting The report from AP on CBS's website says that the mandatory sentence is life-in-prison. So the judge sets July as the sentencing date (what day in July, who knows? This is the AP, remember) and then GRANTS BOND to the convicted al-Timimi (amount of bond, who knows? This is the AP, remember). Now, unless the amount of the bond was, say, 3 billion dollars or so, I would guess that we have seen the last of Dr. al-Timimi. If you or I were facing a mandatory life-in-prison sentence and the judge were stupid enough to release you or I on a bond that we could in any way whatsoever collect, well then, adios amigos.
