La Jeunesse: Jailed Marine's Release Looking 'Increasingly Likely'
There are new hopes this morning for the family of a U.S. Marine jailed in Mexico for the past six months.
The attorney for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi said late Tuesday that the prosecution’s psychiatrist interviewed the jailed Marine and agreed with the defense that he has PTSD.
The psychiatrist also concluded that treatment is not available in Mexico, where Tahmooressi has been jailed since March 31.
The family is hopeful that the ruling will lead to the judge dismissing the case and freeing Tahmooressi so he can return to the U.S. for treatment.
William La Jeunesse reported that a ruling could come within the next three weeks and that the defense would rest its case this morning.
Tahmooressi was arrested when he accidentally crossed into Mexico with guns in his truck. The guns were legally registered in the U.S.
The news comes as a House hearing is taking place today on the detention of Sgt. Tahmooressi.
