Dumanis Stoops To New Low Conducts Surveillance of Patients – Benjamin Gasper Trial Update

In line with San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis’ self proclaimed ‘fierce fight’ against medical marijuana patients in San Diego, almost two years after his initial arrest, the second attempt to prosecute Benjamin Gasper, a legal medical marijuana patient is underway. Dumanis’ office days before trial was supposed to begin, brought in ‘new’ evidence in an attempt to pressure the defendant into taking a deal rather then going through with the trial. The ‘new’ evidence includes transcripts of text messages between Benjamin, other medical marijuana patients, his family, and friends.

Benjamin Gasper’s trail has been postponed to allow the defense to respond to the new evidence. The next court date is March 19th at 9:30 in department 50 of San Diego Superior Court.

“The latest move from the prosecution makes it clear that Dumanis is willing to go to great lengths to persecute patients, including surveying their text messages, emails, and personal communications. This continued harassment and attack on the medical cannabis community must end” said Terrie Best, San Diego Americans for Safe Access Court Support Coordinator.

With Dumanis’ recent bid for San Diego Mayor, it is critical the community loudly voice their outrage for her antics against patients as well as strongly oppose her Mayoral bid.
