Kaine Statement on Tyler Wenrich

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) released the following statement on the sentencing of Virginia resident Tyler Wenrich:

“I’m glad that Tyler Wenrich isn’t going to receive a lengthy prison sentence and will be able to soon return home to Virginia to be with his family. It’s clear he never intended to violate the laws of Turks and Caicos. When Tyler’s family reached out to my office about Tyler’s detention, my office contacted the State Department to highlight his case, and I advocated for leniency while his case was being reviewed.”
