Occupy Wall Street Protesters Want Charges Dropped
October 17, 2011
Attorneys representing the approximately 800 Occupy Wall Street protesters who have been arrested in the past month are demanding that prosecutors dismiss the charges against them.
The lawyers are threatening to take all the cases to trial, if charges aren't dropped to further clog an already jammed court system.
If the District Attorney pursues the remaining cases, protesters will be marching into the courtrooms en masse beginning Nov. 15, when 60 demonstrators are set to appear before one judge.
