Notice of Appeal Challenging Arrest & Detention of Marine Brandon Raub

CHESTERFIELD, VA (August 22, 2012)— Attorneys for The Rutherford Institute have filed a Notice of Appeal in the General District Court of the City of Hopewell, Virginia, in the case of a former Marine, Brandon Raub, who was arrested by local police and FBI agents and is being detained in a psychiatric ward and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page. Rutherford Institute attorneys are challenging the actions of Chesterfield County, Va. as procedurally improper, legally unjustified, and in violation of Raub’s First Amendment rights. Raub was arrested on Thursday, August 16, 2012, and transported to John Randolph Medical Center, where he was held against his will due to alleged concerns that his Facebook posts were “terrorist in nature.”
