Ed Frey will be defending activist Gary Johnson, arrested for sleeping in front of the courthouse with a "Sleep is Not a Crime" sign in early January.

He has been in jail in Watsonville awaiting trial for the last month and a half.

He has been charged with multiple counts of sleeping ("lodging") for a peaceful solitary protest right around the building from the Occupy Santa Cruz activists.

The four sets of pleadings are attached below. Three of them are directly a part of this calendar item, the fourth is in a comment below.

A demurrer is a claim ("I demur" or disagree) that the charges against the defendant are so badly framed that they don't constitute a recognizable crime or that the ordinance itself is unconstitutional.
