Jon Hammar, U.S. Marine imprisoned in Mexico on gun charge to be released today
The U.S. Marine held on a gun charge in Mexico is set to be released to day according to a report via Fox News Radio. Hammar’s Mother apparently called in with the news.
Olivia Hammar said the judge hearing Hammar’s case issued a ruling in his favor and that her son is to be released at a time on Friday yet to be announced. No more details were available. Hammar, 27, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been stuck in a notorious, drug cartel-controlled prison just 15 miles south of the U.S. border since Aug. 13, after he crossed into Mexico and declared an antique shotgun to Mexican customs officials.
