Occupy NH members accused of violating curfew
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Seventeen members of the Occupy New Hampshire movement are on trial after they were they were cited last fall for violating the curfew in a city park.
The defendants say they are protected by the state constitution and should be allowed to be there.
WMUR-TV reports both the defense and prosecution agreed Friday that the Occupy New Hampshire members were in Manchester's Veterans Park and violated a city ordinance that required them to vacate the park after 11 p.m.
The defense has asked a judge to find that ordinance unconstitutional.
