loitering charges dropped against 157 defendants

The Columbus Day Defendants are split among 3 different judges. Yesterday, one of Judge Ortiz-@hite dismissed the loitering charges against all defendants in her court, citing the loitering statute unconstitutional. Today, Judge Burd dismissed all of the loitering charges against the defendants in her court. That leaves only a "refusal to obey a lawful order" charge against the majority of the defendants. Also, all charges were dismissed against 7 defendants today because probable cause for their arrest could not be established. Last Friday, all charges against 5 defendants were also dismissed for the same reason. The city of Denver is still proceeding with their plans to put all the remaining defendants on trial for the charges that are still pending against them.
