Denver: Update on squatter arrest

Anarchist prisoner Amelia Nicol had her sentencing hearing today, October 1st, in Denver County Court. She had been found guilty on August 21, 2012 of Criminal Trespass, Assault on an officer, and Resisting Arrest.

Amelia was sentenced today to 2 sentences of 1 year imprisonment each, both ordered to run concurrently. She was granted time served of 345 days, and the judge ordered that she could be released immediately, pending meeting and intake into probation, of which she is to serve 2 years.

It is our understanding that Amelia will be released by tomorrow afternoon.
