The protestor’s name is Therese “Patricia” Okoumou, and she was convicted yesterday on three charges. Worth noting that she wanted a jury trial, as is her right, but was denied on grounds that it was a “minor offense” despite facing up to a possible year and a half in prison.

Impeccable timing by Webster’s Dictionaries (a West Hartford native, my home town) to announce their word of the year on the day a woman was denied her Sixth Amendment rights for exercising her First Amendment rights.
