Jury Acquits Man Who Wrote Protests On Sidewalk In Chalk

NPR- JUNE 1, 2013

Jeffrey Olson faced 13 years in jail for writing on a sidewalk with chalk. But a San Diego jury of two men and 10 women found him not guilty of criminal vandalism. Olson, 40, was charged with 13 counts of vandalism for expressing his opinions on sidewalks outside three Bank of America branches

A happy win for the defense.
Let’s chalk one up for common sense.
