Urgent Action Update: Dr. Scott Warren New Trial Slated for November (USA: UA 69.19)

Dr. Scott Warren was facing 20 years in prison for providing humanitarian aid to migrants in the desert of the US-Mexico border region. His first trial ended in June 2019, when the jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision. On 2 July 2019, the prosecution announced it will try Dr. Warren again on 12 November 2019. They offered a plea deal, but it is unclear if he will accept it. The prosecution only dropped the conspiracy charges against him, so he would now face 10 years in prison.
