Lawyer in Mexico argues for American woman's release from prison after drug-smuggling arrest

A lawyer for an Arizona woman accused of smuggling drugs in Mexico has presented evidence to the judge in the case that they hope will prove she is innocent.

The evidence included video showing Yanira and Gary Maldonado were the last two people to board a bus and that they carried bottles of water and blankets to stay warm.

Lawyer Jose Francisco Benitez Paz says the video shows they couldn't have possibly sneaked 12 pounds of marijuana onto the bus under the blankets.

A judge could decide Friday whether to throw out the case. The arrest has prompted outrage in the U.S. among politicians and family members who believe she was set up by a smuggler.
