Democracy Now: 8 OWS Protesters Found Guilty in Trinity Case


Eight Occupy Wall Street protesters have been found guilty of trespassing stemming from their arrest at New York’s Trinity Church in December. The protesters had scaled a fence onto church-owned property after Trinity refused to give them sanctuary following their eviction from Zuccotti Park at the time.

One of the defendants, Mark Adams, was sentenced to 45 days in prison on additional charges, 15 more days than prosecutors had sought.
