Jailed Marine Andrew Tahmooressi Back In Mexican Court

” On Day No. 127 of imprisonment, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi entered a federal court in Tijuana and faced four border officials who were involved in his March 31 arrest on weapons charges.

  Following the approximately five-hour hearing, Defense Attorney Fernando Benitez told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News’ “On the Record” that he felt his client was “a little more upbeat” and that he was “growing more optimistic as evidence is entered into his case.”

  Four witnesses — two Mexican soldiers and two Mexican border agents involved in Tahmooressi’s arrest — testified Monday

  Benitez asserts Tahmooressi’s civil rights were violated because he was not provided a translator to adequately explain why he was being arrested. He also alleges the 26-year-old Marine was held at the port of entry, where he crossed from San Ysidro, Calif., for more than eight hours before being transported to the federal police headquarters and formally charged with the Mexican federal crime of bringing weapons and ammunition used by the military into the country. He was not charged with weapons trafficking.”
