Former Tehachapi resident and Marine veteran Trevor Reed has been imprisoned in Moscow, Russia for a crime his parents say he did not commit.

A Marine veteran who graduated from Tehachapi High School in 2010 has spent the last year and a half in a Russian prison after a birthday party in a park led to an altercation with police.

In July 2020, a Russian judge sentenced Trevor Reed, 29, to nine years behind bars on evidence U.S. Ambassador John Sullivan called "flimsy" in an interview with NBC News last July.
