Three More Occupy Oakland Protesters Charged
District Attorney Nancy O'Malley has charged three men with misdemeanors, including battery on an officer and assault with a deadly weapon. The District Attorney filed the charges just days before the statute of limitations runs out.
The charges stem from an Occupy Oakland protest last October. More protests marking the one-year anniversary of the first police raid in Frank Ogawa Plaza are planned for Thursday.
A spokeswoman for the DA's office says the timing is a coincidence, but she says the message is clear: People who come to the city to commit crimes will be prosecuted.
