Court Support and Witnesses needed for Pico-Union case
I wanted to pass along a request for support.
On the night of the town hall 9.8.10 and severe police repression in response to the killing of Manuel Jamines there was a young man arrested by the name of Daniel Cortez. He was there with wife and child and was accused of assault on an officer with a slingshot. He was on the south side of 6th street by the Food 4 Less in a crowd of people.
He has court this Wednesday October 13th, at 8:30am 210 West Temple Division 40 and is in need of people to step forward as witnesses or may have video footage.
So far his charges have been reduced from a felony to misdemeanor and he also has an ICE hold putting him at danger for deportation.
The attorney is Andres Bustamante (213) 891-9009 if someone is serious about stepping forward.
The wife and family could also use moral support if you just wanted to show up in court.
