Craig’s defense team ‘welcomes’ ACLU arguments

Sen. Larry Craig’s lead attorney, Billy Martin, has issued this statement on behalf of his defense team:

“We welcome the ACLU’s filing today and their involvement in this case. We have argued to the court that the facts which Senator Craig admits happened on that day do not constitute a crime. The ACLU’s legal position is that Senator Craig’s arrest may have violated his Constitutional rights. Furthermore, the ACLU’s position is the sting conducted by the airport police may also violate the protection the United States Constitution provides all of us. We are hopeful the court will agree with the legal arguments and the facts that we have presented and allow Senator Craig to withdraw the guilty plea on September 26th.”
