    Former Marine Jailed in Violent Mexican Prison on False Charges​




    by William Bigelow
    18 Dec 2012

    One former Marine who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan is being chained to a bed in a storage closet in a violent Mexican prison because the Mexican government claims the gun he carried violated their laws. He has received death threats during the four months he has been held there.

    Jon Hammar, who is being held in the notorious CEDES prison where the most violent members of the Los Zetas and Gulf Cartel are jailed, was arrested when he traveled through Mexico on his way to Costa Rica last August. He was accused of using a gun that was used by the Mexican Army, which carries a 15-year sentence.

    One problem: as Robert Beall, a famous hunting guide who used to host the Pursuit Channel television show "World of Hunting” asserted, said the vintage Sears Roebuck shotgun wielded was not outside Mexican law and may have only violated the law in not having the proper permits, for which he was not accused:


    Based on what I have read, he was totally within the parameters of the law in terms of the weapon. People are usually fined and released if they don't have the appropriate permit.

    Mexico has claimed that Hammar Jr.'s 24-inch length barrel is one inch too short for the government’s requirement of 25 inches. Hammar’s defense attorney, Eddie Varon-Levy, said that Mexican officials even admitted that the Mexican Army doesn’t use the .410 gauge shells fired by Hammar’s gun, a family heirloom.

    If our government won't help him his family will have to pay a boatload of money to a lawyer who will then spread the bribes around to the right folks to spring him. The problem is finding an honest Mexican lawyer who won't just pocket the money and make up some bullshit story. Or, likely say more money is needed before he blows town with it all.
