Prosecutors Drop All Charges Against Remaining #J20 Defendants

HeadlineJul 09, 2018
H12 all remaining j20 cases dropped

And in Washington, D.C., federal prosecutors have dropped all charges against all remaining defendants who were arrested at President Trump’s Inauguration Day “Disrupt J20” protests in January of 2017. Prosecutors had initially threatened over 200 people, including journalists, with a slew of felony charges that carried sentences of up to 60 years in prison. The dismissal of all remaining charges means prosecutors failed to win a single conviction in front of a jury related to the protests during Trump’s inauguration.
