IMPORTANT UPDATE (01/14/13): Gun Rights Examiner has just been informed the hearing has been postponed until Jan. 28.
A motion filed by attorneys for the Reese family, New Mexico gun dealers imprisoned for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members, and who have since had conspiracy and money laundering charges against them dismissed, will be heard Tuesday morning at the United States District Court in Las Cruces, Luna Tea Party Patriots reported Wednesday.
“Information that could be heard on January 15 may shed some light on two issues that were mentioned during the last hearing concerning the motion for immediate release of Rick and Ryin Reese,” the post on the activist group’s website reports .
“First the public learned the government withheld information from the defense during trial and only recently provided it to the defense,” the report continues. “Second, defense attorney Robert Gorence mentioned during the hearing [that] defense attorney Jason Bowles apparently may have uncovered a link between the Reese case and Operation Fast and Furious.”
These have been developments reported in Gun Rights Examiner and corroborated with a family source.
“The prosecution withheld vital information from our defense team and they wanted it sealed so our attorneys couldn't see the contents,” the source claimed about this latest development. “[This] could exonerate them, as the witness that could have helped them to be free was also under investigation.”
The hearing will be held Jan.15 at 8:30 a.m. in Judge Robert Brack’s Courtroom, in the United States District Court in Las Cruces.
