A case was brought on his behalf against him and other issues that were in violation of his Constitutional rights because he was jailed for so long with no charges filed. The evening before his case would be to be heard by the Supreme Court charges were finally filed against him. It is thought that this was only done so that the Supreme Court will never hear the full case due to the fact Bush Administration might have been found guilty of wrongdoing. Ironically, no charges were filed which had to do using the allegations of his supposed involvement to detonate a “dirty bomb.” He had been charged with lesser much less crimes that are specific Attorney General Ashcroft had stated as he was detained that the evidence against Padilla was overwhelming. He was subjected to and the length of time he was detained he was not mentally competent to stand trial before he was set to stand trial, Padilla’s attorney tried to argue that because of the torture.
