To give you an appropriate timeline of how the court case went down before Gavin absconded to Mexico, it is important to get a timeline of events leading up to Gavin choosing to start livin' la vida fugitiva.
the motion to compel
On the 25th of October 2017, Prosecutor Marc Dano filed a Motion to Compel Gavin to unlock his phone. Given the fact that Gavin associates with other habitual criminals such as the Bundy ranchers and Ernie Tertelge, this obviously concerned him. After all, prosecutors might find contact details for co-conspirators, crimes that are currently planned or have already been committed, and other concerning things.
While we can't know for certain what is actually on the phone, Gavin's criminal associations and conduct make it a likely treasure trove of criminal knowledge.Download the Motion to Compel
motion to dismiss
Gavin filed his own motion with the court. He filed a pitiful Motion to Dismiss, claiming all sorts of nonsense. He claimed that there is a "lack of evidence" for the crimes he committed, that the things he did are okay because freedom of speech makes harassment okay, that he somehow didn't obstruct the police when they were trying to find a missing child.Download Gavin's Motion to Dismiss
