Preliminary Hearing for Seven Remaining Santa Cruz Eleven Defendants Set for August 20th
Thu Aug 9 2012 (Updated 08/23/12)
Seven Remaining Santa Cruz Eleven Defendants Return to Court August 17th & 20th
On July 20th, Cameron Laurendeau and Franklin "Angel" Alcantara went before Judge John Salazar in department 3 of the Santa Cruz Courthouse. There were about a dozen people, including four codefendants, supporting them in court. Alcantara and Laurendeau are among the eleven people known as the "Santa Cruz Eleven" who were each charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors in association with the Fall 2011 occupation of the vacant Wells Fargo Bank building located at 75 River Street in downtown Santa Cruz.

Six of the Santa Cruz Eleven have had all charges against them dismissed by Santa Cruz Judge Paul Burdick in pre-trial hearings on April 25th and May 14th, however the District Attorney refiled all charges against Alcantara and Laurendeau. Their new preliminary hearing will be joined with the five other remaining Santa Cruz Eleven defendants.

The seven remaining defendants in the 75 River Street case — Cameron Laurendeau, Franklin "Angel" Alcantara, Brent Adams, Desiree Foster, Becky Johnson, Robert Norse, and Gabriella Ripley-Phipps — will have a readiness hearing on Friday, August 17th and a preliminary hearing on Monday, August 20th before Judge Burdick.
