Report on April 12 at the Queens County Court House
The Shut Down Rikers Trial!

no rikers

Clark Kissinger, manager of Revolution Books, and Miles Solay of the band Outernational, appeared at the Queens Courthouse to stand trial for the "crime" of demanding the shutdown of Rikers Island at a demonstration outside the jail entrance last October 23. Once again the state refused to reduce any of the charges, the most serious of which is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. Half the courtroom was filled with supporters.

Clark and Miles's attorney, Kenneth Gilbert, presented a written motion to join the two cases which the state has been aiming to try separately. The judge was incredulous that the District Attorney wouldn't just agree to join the two cases that stemmed from the same event, had identical charges, and the same defense attorney. Instead the District Attorney requested three weeks to study and reply to the one paragraph motion. Barring unforeseen circumstances, an actual trial will begin July 12.
