Case Dismissed! Charges Dropped in My Bizarre Arrest at a January Romney Event

by Matt B. on July 15, 2012

In January, I had one of the weirder and more unsettling experiences of my life – after (possibly) being mistaken for a protester, I was removed and then arrested for “criminal trespass” at a public Mitt Romney event in Hudson, NH.

Recently, I got some great news: the case has been dismissed! No charges, no trial, and thanks to the wonderful pro-bono legal work of Andru Volinsky (with an assist from Jim Rosenberg), no legal fees. (Tony Barash, former Director of the American Bar Association Center for Pro Bono, put me in contact with Volinsky, so I’m very grateful to Tony as well!)

Thanks to everyone who expressed their support, and to everyone who participated in what became some very worthwhile conversations about our political process.
