Agustin Ramon was illegally held on an ICE detainer in Lincoln County. When he tried to pay his bond to secure his release from jail pending trial, he was informed that because of an ICE detainer, the jail could not release him.  This case is similar to the class action we filed in Gallatin County. The case is now pending before the Montana Supreme Court.
