First protest crackdown trial set to begin January 23

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The first trial is scheduled later this month in a crackdown on protests at the State Capitol that began last summer.

37-year-old Jason Huberty of Madison is scheduled to go on trial January 23rd on a non-criminal citation for obstructing access to a passageway. Three other citations against Huberty were also set for trials that day – but they’ve been dismissed, along with two other citations in which trials had been set for later dates.

He and other protestors are being represented for free by former Kenosha County prosecutor and state DOT attorney Robert Jambois. He tells the Madison Capital Times that prosecutors are trying to tie his access obstruction charge to what the state calls an unpermitted demonstration by the Solidarity Singers.

They continue to sing protest songs at the Capitol each day attacking Governor Scott Walker and his administration. And the group refuses to get a permit that the state requires for activities inside the Capitol building.

Huberty still has 3 other citations in which two trials are pending in early February.
