Pretrial for Pilgrim 14 in Plymouth Wednesday
Twelve move forward, two pay fine
The Pilgrim 14 appeared in Plymouth District Court Wednesday for a pretrial hearing. The fourteen men and women were so dubbed after their arrest at an anti-nuclear demonstration on May 20 at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth. They were there to deliver a letter to Entergy, the plant's owner, according to a release from the Pilgrim Coalition. Several organizations were protesting the renewal of Pilgrim's 20-year contract.
The fourteen were arrested by Plymouth police and charged with trespassing. All fourteen, many of who are from Cape Cod, appeared in court on Wednesday as forty people gathered outside the court to show their support.
Two of the fourteen paid the $100 court costs and their charges were dismissed. A trial date of February 25, 2013 was set for the remaining twelve. If found guilty, they could face up to 30 days in jail.
