FULLERTON, California – On April 16th, the Orange County DA’s office issued notices to the students involved in the occupation of Cal State Fullerton’s Humanities building on March 3rd, 2010 that read in part:
A complaint was filed in the North Justice Center charging that on or about 03-03-2010 you committed a violation of section(s)
602(m) PC TRESPASS – OCCUPATION BY SQUATTER
It appears as though all of those charged have received the same court date, May 6th at 8:30AM at the North Justice Center in Fullerton.
These notices appeared after the detained students were told matter-of-factly by the police present that they would not be cited or charged, only banned from campus for 7 days, and that the only further consequences, should there be any, would come down from the university’s own student conduct hearings.
