HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT) -
A Chesterfield Marine will be released from a mental health facility after a judge ruled there wasn't sufficient evidence of allegations made against him.
Brandon Raub was committed to a mental health facility for 30 days after a series of events, including questions about his Facebook page. Now, the Rutherford Institute has taken up his cause.
In court Thursday, the judge said that the petition filed by Chesterfield Police was blank and didn't list a single allegation against him. The judge said Raub suffered a "deprivation of his liberty" by being held without a clear claim.
