State issues citations to protesters in governor's office

Advertiser Staff

State sheriffs this evening issued trespassing citations to seven adults who refused to leave the governor's office after the office closed for the weekend, the governor's office announced.

The sheriffs informed the small group of people in the reception area of the office that if they did not leave, they would be cited for simple trespass.

After the sheriffs gave them time to decide what they would do, about six adults and several children left the office, the governor's office said in a news release.

Seven adults chose to stay and each was cited for simple trespass. Those cited were not removed from the office.

No children were cited. As of 6:30 p.m., five adults and three children remained in the office, the governor's office said.
