Charges Delayed for 28 Misdemeanors Related to Oscar Grant Rebellion

Over 130 people have been arrested in connection with protests surrounding the murder of Oscar Grant III. This morning, the first arraignments were to be held for over 30 people charged with misdemeanors and felonies at the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in Oakland. Charges for 28 individuals charged with misdemeanors were delayed, meaning that District Attorney Tom Orloff has up to one year to file charges. One person with a misdemeanor and two people with felonies are still facing their charges in court. The next arraignments for those arrested in connection with the Oscar Grant Rebellion are February 9th, 13th, and 17th. The Oakland 100 Support Committee requests that supporters keep the pressure on until all charges are dropped.
