One aspect of a principled and aggressive defense strategy is knowing when to utilize resources outside the courtroom for our clients.  On behalf of our client JAG DEFENDERS attorney BETHANY PAYTON-O’BRIEN obtained the video featured in this CBS 8 SAN DIEGO NEWS REPORT.  The video clearly demonstrates both an unlawful arrest and unlawful command influence.  The media can be a valuable tool to bring attention to injustices and to bring pressure on commands to do the right thing.  Attorney Payton O’Brien appeared in multiple media reports surrounding this issue.   As result of her efforts ALL CHARGES AGAINST OUR CLIENT WERE DROPPED.
