Last minute charges have been filed on people busted last October 25th, they were ordered to appear today, at Department 107 with almost no notice.
Some people were notified that the DA may be filing some Occupy cases from last October just before the statute expires. The person appearing on Wednesday (10/25/12) has already contacted the Public defender.
It would be good to know if anyone has any other information about this. There is a fear concerning timing; perhaps it’s an attempt to make arrests for FTA’a at anniversary actions. This is a total abuse of process. If anyone has any more information about this please let us know.

Anyone who was arrested last October 25th should check their mail and/or call the DA’s office at 510-268-7500 to make sure charges have not been filed against them. Anyone who has been served with these BS last-minute charges should contact the NLG.
