SIGN this petition to the Queens DA to DROP the Charges on Clark & Miles
Clark Kissinger and Miles Solay
Clark and Miles with Kenny Gilbert, their lawyer
The prosecutor disclaimed knowledge of such video, and has so far refused to lower charges on Clark and Miles. The new trial date is Tuesday April 12. 15 others arrested at the protest faced no criminal charges, but Clark and Miles are charged with “Obstruction of Government Administration,” which could carry a sentence of a year at Rikers. Supporters, including the Stop Mass Incarceration Network are demanding the Queens District Attorney drop charges in the case, as the two were part of a non-violent protest.

After deliberating for four full days on the case of three people charged with three misdemeanors for the April 14, 2015 protest to stop murder by police, the jury came back the fifth day with a unanimous not guilty verdict on the charge of blocking the street and unable to agree on the other two charges. On the charge of blocking train tracks ten jurors voted not guilty and on the charge of disobeying a lawful police order nine jurors voted not guilty. The judge declared a mistrial on the two undecided charges and the prosecutor announced she will not refile. The judge dismissed the two charges. The case is now dismissed. Victory for the people! And into the fight on the next A14 trial with two more defendants which has already begun. more infoRead more
