7 pipeline protesters take 'reasonable' plea offer


February 10, 2017

MANDAN, N.D. — Seven pipeline protesters accused of disorderly conduct took what two defense attorneys called a "reasonable" plea offer just before their trial was to start Thursday morning.

In exchange for admitting to a Class B misdemeanor charge arising from a Dakota Access Pipeline protest on Aug. 15, the defendants each received a one-year deferred sentence and a $250 fine. That means if they stay out of trouble for the next year, the conviction will be cleared off their record.
