Hey Folks! Here’s our latest update!
Ricky, who was arrested on bogus burglary charges and held in jail since July is out, as are Tyrone and TJ. Hellz Yea!
About a week before Mehserle’s sentencing on November 5th, news reported that the city of Oakland was planning to charge 4 protesters from July 8th with civil lawsuits. Until this week, it seemed like those charges were put together to threaten those planning to protest on November 5th. However, we found out this week that at least one of those threatened with civil lawsuits has been served papers AFTER his case from July 8th was dropped. The City of Oakland is charging him with a $25,000 lawsuit. We expect more news to come soon.
People’s court cases from the night of the Mehserle verdict AND the sentencing (July 8th and November 5th) are coming up. While some folks have plead out under pressure from high charges, others are continuing battle theirs. The folks listed below have asked for support in their felony courtrooms… Please come!
