Sept. 11 trial set for volunteer in immigrant harboring case
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A volunteer for a group that tries to prevent immigrants from dying in the Arizona desert has been given a new trial date on charges that he harbored people in the United States illegally.
The trial for Scott Daniel Warren had previously been set for early June, but it has since been moved to Sept. 11.
Warren was arrested in January after federal agents conducted surveillance on a building in Ajo where two immigrants were given food, water, beds and clean clothes.
He’s a volunteer with the group No More Deaths.
He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
His arrest came after the group released videos of a Border Patrol agent kicking over water jugs meant for immigrants and of another agent pouring water on the ground.
