A Charleston judge has dropped trespassing charges against two more Occupy Charleston protestors who were arrested in November.
The Charleston Post and Courier reports a Charleston city judge dropped the charges Monday against Ramon Caraballo and Tyreece Washington. Caraballo told the paper he’s disappointed the charges were dropped because he had wanted to present his case to a jury.
Back in January, seven other Occupy Charleston protesters who were arrested on trespassing charges agreed to a deal where their charges would be dropped if they stayed out of trouble for six months.
The nine protesters had refused to leave Marion Park on November 23 to comply with an 11 p.m. curfew.
The maximum penalty on the trespassing charge is 30 days in jail or a $500 fine.
