Charges Dropped Against Moms Arrested in Sacramento Demonstrating Against Removal of Medical Vaccine Exemptions
Seven parents were arrested on September 9, the 7th day of the 11-day Occupy of CA Capitol (9/3 to 9/13) in protest of SB 276 & SB 714 which removed the broad ME to vaccination resulting in the complete exclusion of the most medically fragile and vulnerable children in CA from all daycare and school. All seven arrestees, along with supporters, were present at the Sacramento County Court on 11/22 where their attorney informed the six women that no charges were being filed against them for their actions on September 9. The official wording in their individual cases is “decline to file charges”. Mike Mattingly was the only one to stand before the judge as he was charged with one count of resisting arrest for his actions on September 9. His court date is on January 16, 2020 where he will be pleading not guilty.
