LA Times reported:
A Mexican judge on Friday ordered the immediate release of a Marine held behind bars since April 1 on weapons charges..
Lawyers for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, 25, a reservist who served two deployments to Afghanistan, had argued that his arrest at the San Ysidro border was improper and that he needs immediate treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder from his combat experiences.
The judge said in the order that the case was dismissed and that Tahmooressi was granted "absolute freedom." He ordered the release on humanitarian grounds without making a decision on Tahmooressi's guilt or innocence.
“It is with an overwhelming and humbling feeling of relief that we confirm that Andrew was released today after spending 214 days in a Mexican prison," Tahmooressi's family said in a statement.
The order issued late Friday said his release would allow him to receive treatment for PTSD. A court-appointed psychiatrist had urged the judge to end the case so that Tahmooressi could return to the U.S. and receive treatment.
