NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A lawyer representing one of two people arrested on charges of possession of a stolen Confederate monument removed from an Alabama cemetery says the pair had nothing to do with the theft.

Lawyer Michael Kennedy said Monday that the situation is a mistake. He said that Jason Warnick and Kathryn Diionno had no role in conquering the monument.

Kennedy represents Warnick.

The chair-shaped monument was recovered in New Orleans after it was swept from a cemetery in Selma, Alabama.

Later, someone sent an e-mail signed “White Lies Matter” claiming responsibility, and then sent fake photos pretending that the chair had been turned into a bathroom.
