Event Type Court Date
Organizer/AuthorKim
On May 22nd, protester Gabe Meyers has a 9 AM hearing at the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse, located at 661 Washington Street, Department 107. He needs the support of those of us who can be there.

Gabe faces multiple counts of battery because he splattered red paint at the April 9th BART Board meeting (see link below); in its then recent court filings, BART had outrageously dismissed the slaughter of Oscar Grant as the result of a "tragic mistake."

The charge of battery is a felony and counts as a “strike.”

§A little correction
by Gabe Saturday May 16th, 2009 12:33 PM
Thanks Kim for posting this,

Two little corrections though, 1) I am not being charged with a felony. Battery is a misdemeanor, but technichally I could get 6 months if convicted. I am being charged with three counts of battery right now, because the paint splattered on three people when I dumped it on the desk. Also, the hearing is going to be in Dept. 104, not 107. Other than that, the info is correct. So if people can make the time to show up, I would really appreciate it.


Gabe Meyers

PS- Thanks again Kim =)

Hey Kim,

Sorry, I do not have the penal codes for my charges with me, so I can not tell you what they are. I will repost here tomorrow after I get out of court with the penal codes and any new developments

Thanks again

Gabe

PS- Hope to see you there

Gabe Meyers's next court date will be on June 8th at 9AM in Dept. 104 of Wiley. M Manuel Courthouse at 661 Washington St. in Downtown Oakland. Gabe entered a plea of not guilty at his last appearance on May 22nd and had been assigned a public defender by the court. There also was an apperance by the BART attorney at Meyer's last court apperance, in which he had approached the District Attorney's desk and had presented the prosecutor with a file, presumably on Meyers.
