Santa Cruz Eleven Update: The Steamroller Slouches Into Summer On Friday, June 8th, five of the Santa Cruz Eleven had preliminary hearing dates set by visiting Judge Stephen Sillman. Additionally, Brent Adams now has a new public defender, attorney Lisa K. McCamey.

Gabriella Ripley-Phipps, whose attorney is Shaneen Porter, and Becky Johnson, represented by attorney Dan Clymo, will be going into their preliminary hearing on Monday, June 25th at 9 AM in Dept. 6. They were ordered to appear on Friday, June 22nd at 9 AM in the same courtroom for a readiness hearing. Gabriella and Becky are eager to put these cases behind them, and chose not to wait until August 20th when the judge scheduled preliminary hearings for Robert Norse, Desiree Foster, and Brent Adams.

The Santa Cruz County District Attorney's Office has refiled all four charges — two felony charges of conspiracy and vandalism, and two counts of misdemeanor trespass — against Franklin Alcantara and Cameron Laurendeau after judge Paul Burdick dismissed them on April 25th. A new preliminary hearing for Franklin and Cameron was scheduled for July 23rd.
