Petition to the Sacramento County District Attorney: Drop all charges against Maile Hampton now!

maile-court.jpg

The Sacramento police have outrageously charged ANSWER Coalition activist Maile Hampton, a young Black woman, with felony “lynching.” After holding her initially on $100,000 bail, Maile is now out of jail. The Sacramento District Attorney has decided to drop the felony lynching charge after sustained community pressure and international publicity. However, Maile still faces an unjust misdemeanor charge and could spend up to a year in jail in addition to being put on probation and being given a large fine.

Maile most recently appeared in court May 21, and her case was moved to June 19 at 8:30 a.m.

Add your name below to demand that the Sacramento County District Attorney drop the remaining charge against Maile Hampton now!
