Mother to visit Tahmooressi and meet with lawyers

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The mother of a former Marine jailed in Mexico is planning to cross the border Thursday to see her son and meet with his lawyers.

Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested March 31, after he says he accidentally drove into Tijuana with guns legally registered to him in his truck.

He's currently being held in Tecate and is waiting for his next court date.

Mexico's Attorney General says he's in good health and has received more than 50 visits while in custody.

Tahmooressi served four years in the Marines, including two tours in Afghanistan. He said he was honorably discharged in November 2012. Tahmooressi moved to San Diego from Florida in January for a fresh start.
