The media will be barred from the tiny Mexican federal courtroom where a U.S. Marine jailed for two months after accidentally crossing the border with three registered guns will appear before a judge for the first time today.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been held in two Mexican prisons since his arrest, one of which he tried to escape after receiving threats, according to his supporters. He’ll go before a federal judge in Mexico’s sixth-largest city at 9 a.m. local time. According to his Tijuana-based attorney, Alejandro Osuna, Tahmooressi will be afforded the chance to tell his story to the judge. The Mexican customs agent and soldiers involved in his arrest will also make statements.

“Justice will prevail, but not because of the truth from the other side.”- Jill Tahmooressi, mother of Marine held in Mexico

“I have no confidence in their system,” said Tahmooressi’s mother, Jill Tahmooressi. “Justice will prevail, but not because of the truth from the other side.”

Since his arrest, Andrew has faced death and rape threats, has had his feet and hands shackled and lost weight, according to his mother, who has been able to visit him and speaks with her son by phone several times a week. Speaking from her home in Weston, Fla., the worried mom said her son is relieved that he has the opportunity to state his case in open court and before a judge.

“It’s never difficult to tell the truth,” Jill Tahmooressi said.
