Occupy LA Protester Pleads Guilty To Trespassing

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Occupy LA protester, who returned to Los Angeles City Hall after a tent encampment was shut down, has pleaded guilty to trespassing.

The city attorney’s office says Bethania Palma was ordered Monday to serve 20 days in jail or perform 10 days of work with the California Department of Transportation.

She also must stay away from the park around City Hall. Authorities arrested six protesters Saturday night after they returned to the fenced-off area. Three other people have been charged and await pre-trial hearings.

Nearly 300 other people were arrested on Nov. 30 when police dismantled the months-old encampment. The city attorney’s office says 51 criminal cases have been filed. One protester was convicted of failure to disperse and was given 10 days of community service.

    They should be forced to pay for the mess OWS made and damamges to local busineeses…they want to ‘redistribute’ wealth and protect the little guys so bad lets start with their money and protect the small busineeses and families they hurt. OWS=99% of the problem!

      Hey ZEIDLER, we all know it’s you hijacking screen names to say something stupid since you started using one of my screen names “up//yours.” Your limp d!ck fell off when I called you out to show your puS$y ass at a Kelly Thomas rally, chikensh!t no-show dumbf**k.
      So show your puS$y ass by where they had the Kelly Thomas rally. There is a sculpture that looks like a big check mark in front be there at 1:00p 12/22, if your $lut mama can sew your limp d!ck back on.

    I can’t get a police job.That’s because that lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection.
