Graterford 7 Legal Update

APRIL 11th, 2013: Yesterday, seven Decarcerate PA members went to court to face charges for a civil disobedience action on the access road of the prison construction site in Montgomery County.   The charges are "Defiant Trespass, Failure of Disorderly Persons to Disperse upon Official Order, and Persistent Disorderly Conduct."  We were scheduled for a preliminary hearing, but a clerk in the judges office forgot to subpoena DOC employees who were supposed to testify, so the prosecution was not ready to proceed.  We should have a new court date sometime in May, so stay tuned for future updates. 

We are also facing potentially large fines and court costs. Please help us offset these costs by making a donation here: http://decarceratepa.info/help-support-graterford-7
