N.Y. Marriage Activists Offered Probation


Four marriage equality activists arrested and charged February 12 after they chained themselves to the New York City Marriage License Bureau accepted pleas of adjournment contemplating dismissal (ACD), a kind of informal probation, on Friday.

According to Gay City News, each of the four members of new direct action group Queer Rising were charged with obstructing government administration and two charges of disorderly conduct. Manhattan district attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who took office last month, offered them ACDs.

"Justin Elzie, Alan Bounville, Gabriel Yuri Bollag, and Jake Goodman accepted the offer which would allow them to dismiss all charges after six months assuming they are not arrested again during this time," reported a news release from Queer Rising.
