UPDATE: Judge Orders Brandon Raub's Release From Psychiatric Facility
HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT) – A Chesterfield Marine will be released from a mental health facility after a judge ruled there wasn’t sufficient evidence of allegations made against him.
Brandon Raub was committed to a mental health facility for 30 days afterÂ a series of events, including questions about his Facebook page.Â Â Now, the Rutherford Institute has taken up his cause.
In court Thursday, the judge said that the petition filed by Chesterfield Police was blank and didn’t list a single allegation against him. The judge said Raub suffered a “deprivation of his liberty” by being held without a clear claim.
Raub’s case went viral whenÂ a YouTube videoÂ of his arrest began circulating over the weekend. SupportersÂ argued he shouldÂ never have been taken in handcuffs and said he never belonged in a mental health facility.
