COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

The Colorado Supreme Court says a judge correctly tossed evidence against an Iraqi man accused of violating a woman in a sex assault case.

Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, who helped U.S. soldiers hunt insurgents in Iraq, was among five Iraqi men charged after a 2012 attack on an unconscious woman. He is being held on $250,000 bond pending a hearing Tuesday after his trial was delayed pending the evidence review.
    
The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday a judge correctly suppressed evidence against Ramadon after police told Ramadon he could get sent back to Iraq and possibly killed if he lied to them. Ramadon told authorities he helped the woman after the assault, but did take part.
    
Ramadon's attorney did not return a phone call seeking comment.
