Deal could help Navy photographer of Guantanamo detainees avoid trial

A federal judge disclosed Tuesday that the U.S. Attorney’s office has made a secret offer to resolve the curious passport prosecution of a Miami combat veteran who photographed detainees at Guantánamo and is now a detainee himself. U.S. District Judge Cecilia M. Altonaga revealed the offer of “pretrial diversion” without elaboration in a conference that set a July 12 trial date for Navy Reserves Petty Officer Elisha Dawkins, 26.
