Wyoming Standing Rock activist wins acquittal


A North Dakota judge Thursday acquitted Riverton activist Micah Lott of criminal trespass and rioting charges stemming from his protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Reservation in 2017.

Judge Gail Hagerty acquitted Lott and a fellow defendant after hearing the prosecution’s case only. The defense didn’t have to present its evidence, Lott’s attorney Doug Parr said in a telephone interview.
