Lawsuit against Butler County, Oh Sheriff

A Removed Mexican citizen wins a lawsuit against Butler County Ohio and its Sheriff Richard Jones. The plaintiff was awarded $100,000.

The suit, filed on behalf of Luis Roberto Rodriguez Trevino, alleged Jones' deputies violated his constitutional rights when they "seized" him at a West Chester construction site in 2007. The suit also said Jones lacked the legal authority to enforce federal laws that make it a civil violation - not a crime - for immigrants to be in the United States without proper documentation.
