Columbia Businessman Shakir Hamoodi is expected to begin a 3 year federal prison sentence Tuesday afternoon.
Shakir’s son Husam was working at World Harvest Market in Columbia Monday afternoon – Shakir’s last day before he began his prison sentence.
Husam said around 50 people had stopped by the store throughout the day to say goodbye to Shakir.
He also said Shakir has been very busy these past few days. He compared his father’s prison sentence to it being like someone saying ‘you have three months to live.’
