The future and freedom of a Utah man in a Venezuelan jail may be changing.

According to the Associated Press, a wealthy Venezuelan man may now be funding Holt’s defense.

The AP’s report states Wilmer Ruperti, who is said to be linked to the country`s socialist government, may be helping Holt.

Venezuelan authorities locked up Holt more than a year ago after he went there to marry his wife.
