Statement by Judy Smith Spokesperson for Billy Martin Regarding Senator Larry Craig
WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Senator Larry Craig announced that he has retained Washington DC attorney Billy Martin as legal counsel to look into all of the facts and the law surrounding his arrest at the Minneapolis airport in June. Minneapolis attorney Tom Kelly has also been retained by Senator Craig to assist in his representation. The public has heard the tape that was released by law enforcement officials in Minneapolis and is aware of the discrepancies between the Senator's view of what he says actually occurred and the officer's accusations. Unfortunately, Senator Craig did not seek legal counsel to discuss the Minneapolis incident before resolving the charges on his own. Senator Craig has served the people of Idaho with honor and distinction for the past 18 years. Martin said, "The arrest of any citizen raises very serious constitutional questions, especially when that citizen says that he is innocent and pled guilty in an attempt to avoid public embarrassment. Senator Craig, like every other American citizen, deserves the full protection of our laws. He has the right to pursue any and all legal remedies available as he begins the process of trying to clear his good name."
