BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A U.S. Marine Corps reservist being held in Mexico on weapons charges said Mexican officials have asked him for money, weapons and even a vehicle to set him free.
Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was jailed more than 100 days ago. He was arrested in April after he accidentally took a wrong turn and crossed the border with three legally registered firearms inside his car.
On Wednesday, July 9, Tahmooressi told a Mexican judge that three customs agents told him he could be released with a simple bribe.
The judge could have decided to free him at Wednesday's hearing, but instead sent him back to his cell and said he needed to review the day's testimony before making a decision.
Tahmooressi's next hearing is scheduled for next moth.
