The ENDA 4 Sentenced to Probation


Four protesters who were arrested after staging a demonstration inside House speaker Nancy Pelosi's to call for a House vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act office were charged with "unlawful entry/remaining" and sentenced to community service and six months probation. The protesters, who call themselves the ENDA 4, were arraigned in D.C. superior court Tuesday, according to demonstration organizer GetEqual.

Washington, D.C., residents Janine Carmona and Samantha Ames, Dallas resident Chastity Kirven, and Michelle Wright from Fresno, Calif., were sentenced to six months of probation. Carmona and Ames were also sentenced to community service. Wright and Kirven will not be given community service duties, as it would be difficult to enforce with them living outside the capital's jurisdiction, according to Metro Weekly.
