LINK: Court Date Tomorrow for Weston Marine Imprisoned in Mexico
Posted May 27th, 2014 @ 12:58am

After being in a Mexican prison for nearly two months, a Weston Marine gets his first chance tomorrow to tell a judge he accidentally crossed the boarder with his guns.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi's mother claims her son's doing better now that he's in a secured cell and not fighting for his life, and he's looking forward to his court date.

But she's concerned because there hasn't been any rush to push the case along.

Jill Tahmooressi calls this past Memorial Day an oxymoron because while "he was willing to give up his life for our freedom, yet I wouldn't say that our federal government is all that interested in helping him secure his freedom now that he's in a tight spot."  

She admits both Florida Senators Nelson and Rubio are working to get her son cleared. 

More than 70,000 people have signed a petition on whitehouse.gov to demand the 25-year-old's freedom. 

However, 30,000 more are needed by the end of the month to reach its goal.
