Appeals Judge Upholds Anti-Homeless "Lodging" Law Against "Lighthouse" Linda Lemaster

by Robert Norse
Judge Paul Marigonda, notorious earlier in his career for trying to jail good activists with Food Not Bombs in San Francisco, and prosecutor of homeless people here in Santa Cruz as D.A., has ruled against an unusual Writ of Habeas Corpus filed by attorney Jonathan Gettleman, representing Linda Lemaster in one of the last of the PeaceCamp2010 cases. Lemaster may appeal or go directly to jury trial, facing a possible 6 months in jail and $1000 fine for sitting on the steps of the County Building with a sick activist and a sign suggesting that (homeless) Sleep is not a Crime.
