It looks like the 30 protesters who were arrested at Wake County school board meetings in 2010 will finally be going to court.
Court dates have been scheduled for four Fridays between March 2 and April 13. Prosecutors grouped the court dates for the defendants based on when they were arrested.
This means the people arrested in March and June 2010 will be in court March 2. This group includes the Rev. William Barber, president of the state NAACP; the Rev. Nancy Petty, pastor of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church; Tim Tyson, a Duke University historian and author; and Dante Strobino, co-founder of the self-described socialist group Raleigh FIST.
Barber and Petty, who were re-arrested in July 2010, will also appear in court March 16. That day, some of the other protesters arrested at the tumultuous July 2010 meeting will also go to court.
The remaining people arrested in July 2010 have a court date on March 30.
The people arrested in August 2010, including Seth Keel, have a court date on April 13.
