The 15 adult protesters charged in Monday night’s actions to delay the megaload were arraigned on Wednesday morning in Grant County Justice Court.
Justice of the Peace Kathy Stinnett set security at $10,000 or $1,000 cash for each, and set conditions for their release, including:
* No contact with Omega Morgan or its employees.
* No coming within 1,000 feet of materials, equipment, or other loads being transported by Omega Morgan.
* No possession of “dragon sleeves” or other items used to lock oneself to a fixed object or to prevent safe extraction.
The accused were charged with misdemeanors in connection with the protests, in which vehicles were disabled in the highway, in an attempt to stop the Omega Morgan megaload from proceeding.
A 16-year-old girl, also apprehended at the protests, was released to family friends.
