Change of venue granted for DAPL protester accused of firing a gun

By  | 

A woman who was charged in January with firing a gun during a Dakota Access Pipeline protest in November, has been granted a change of venue.

A court document filed today says the trial for Redfawn Fallis will now be in Fargo in December.

The document says Fallis’ motion argues that a change of venue is necessary to ensure she receives a fair and impartial trial due to “widespread prejudicial publicity regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in general, and her arrest in particular.”
