Petition to the Sacramento County District Attorney: Drop the remaining charge against Maile Hampton now!


Last year, the Sacramento police outrageously charged ANSWER Coalition activist Maile Hampton, a young Black organizer, with felony “lynching.” After holding them initially on $100,000 bail, Maile was released pending trial. 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's case was moved to October 26 at 8:30 a.m. at the Sacramento County Courthouse, Department 9 (720 9th St.) in Sacramento, California.
