Their attorney said they won't get jail time under misdemeanor pleas entered Friday to a Lansing district judge. They will be sentenced in September.

The eight defendants from the Detroit area were arrested and charged with felony resisting and obstructing after police said they tried to push past two troopers guarding the Senate door on Dec. 6.

Okemos attorney Randal Behrmann said his clients pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted resisting and obstructing. If they stay out of trouble, the charge will be reduced further to disorderly conduct.




Still think it's a free country???

Tri-cities realist

Free, perhaps. Anarchy, not yet. We do have laws and the constitution, or had you forgotten that?

Funny how you rarely if ever hear of arrests at tea party rallies...


Zing! Libs hate law applied to them when they act like spoiled children.
