Wounded Soldier's Attorney Releases Statement On His Arrest 6/12/13
STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF SHANE LADNER, FROM ATTORNEY JOHN COOK
"We’re disappointed that law enforcement authorities felt the need to arrest Shane Ladner today, especially in the manner that it happened, a traffic stop on the side of the road. This arrest serves no purpose other than to continue to traumatize Shane and Meg Ladner, both of whom are still recovering from last year’s train accident. We are confident in our ability to defend Shane against these charges and plan to do so. All along, our investigation has shown that, in fact, Shane did receive a Purple Heart for injuries received in service to his country. When all of the information finally comes to light, plenty of people will owe Shane an apology."
