Bid to bring ‘Kill Trump’ Brit home
LAWYERS for a 20-year-old British man accused of attempting to shoot Donald Trump at a Las Vegas casino plan to submit evidence of his medical health to U.S. authorities in an appeal for clemency.
Michael Sandford is due to stand trial later this month over an incident at a rally on June 18 in which he allegedly tried to grab a policeman’s gun to attack the Republican presidential candidate.
But his mother, Lynne Sandford, said her son suffers from mental health issues including autism, anxiety and depression and couldn’t foresee the consequences of his actions.
She said: “He is mentally ill and is not bad or dangerous.”
Saimo Chahal QC, who is representing the family, said they hope the trial date can be adjourned to give them time to gather medical evidence.
She said: “Our main aim would be to try and secure Michael’s repatriation to the UK so he can be assisted in a medical facility.” A ‘RIOT’ in England and Wales must legally involve a minimum of 12 people.
