City Backs off from Jail Sentence due to Community Voice!! Denver Homeless Out Loud Reports

Posted on August 29, 2017 by Jonathan

On Thursday 8/24/17 the city attorneys backed off their original effort to throw Terese in jail for 30 days for the survival ban ticket which violated her probation from sitting in a tiny home. After seeing that the public would outcry for putting someone in jail for sitting in a sleeping bag, they changed their tone and told Terese’s lawyer that they could accept probation and community service instead. 

This is what can happen when the public speaks out for people’s rights! Lets keep this up…
