Default Ben Cannon: case dismissed.

And after that, the court clerk turns to Ben & lawyers and said, "I guess I'll be seeing you in civil court."

Ben: "No, you won't. We'll be in US District Court."

Evidence clearly showed Ben could not have been in the place where he was alleged to have been - he was in Sacto, cellphone tech positioning evidence subpoenaed, plus multiple witnesses.



[Mods, please move this to whatever subforum is most appropriate.]

WTF, This chick have 5150 issues?

Good to hear that Ben can clear his name.

My understanding is Bens case stays in the 2nd amendment section because he was a CGF officer and GunPals owner.

The court clerk thought, given the BS of the case, he'd sue civilly and on a local bases.

But you have Fed civil rights violations when arrested for throwing charges around that are vague and specious, etc.

Did I miss other details that may have shed light on this?

Otherwise, congratulations man! I too hope I know the euphoria of being vindicated, especially in a system where it is pretty difficult to get such vindication.



Maybe next time we meet I can buy you a drink!

Glad it was dismissed. So who was this woman, and why did she make the claims she did?

Dismissed with or without prejudice? And hell yes, take them out behind the US District Court woodshed and grab the 2X4 with rusty nails for the spanking.

Great news and well played all around. Now hopefully Ben will be getting on with his life, businesses and CGF.

I wonder if the Press Democrat will be publishing as big a story about "case dismissed" as they did with the original arrest?

It would be nice to read a follow up report on who this gal was, and the motivation behind her false accusations.

Yes and some people who go around shooting off about situations they have no details about can retract their statments.
