Update: Koger sentenced to 300 days, according to Sunsara Taylor’s Twitter feed.
Gregory Koger could get up to three years in prison for charges stemming from the use of his iPhone to videotape a public statement made by a fellow activist last year.
The incident took place inside the office of the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago last November where a woman named Sunsara Taylor was about to give a statement to voice her disapproval against the EHS for cancelling a lecture she was supposed to give.
According to Taylor’s blog post last year, EHS members called the cops on Koger, who then maced and arrested Koger for videotaping. She claimed it was a public meeting.
Last week, Koger was convicted of trespassing, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.
His sentencing is today.
Here is a personal statement from Koger on Taylor’s blog.
