DNC Protest Cases Still Weak

According to Brian Vincente, executive director of the People's Law Project, of the first 18 cases set for trial, only one has resulted in a conviction.

So far, the city attorney has dismissed eight defendants, juries acquitted six and judges acquitted two. One faces retrial after a jury deadlocked. . .

But City Attorney David Fine noted that about 50 of the protesters arrested have entered guilty pleas.

From here.

Unimpressive and a waste of the City's time and money.
