Judges order 11 Occupy Oakland protesters to stay away from staging area outside City Hall
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' Eleven people who were arrested during the weekend's turbulent Occupy Oakland protests have been ordered to stay away from the plaza outside Oakland City Hall that serves as the movement's main staging area.
Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said two judges granted her office's request for the stay-away orders during the demonstrators' arraignments Tuesday.
The four protesters facing felony charges were directed to keep away from both Frank Ogawa Plaza and the Oakland Convention Center, while the seven charged with misdemeanors may not go within 300 feet of the plaza.
They were among more than 400 people arrested Saturday when a midday march devolved into a clash between some rock-throwing protesters and police who responded with tear gas.
O'Malley says her office is reviewing police reports with an eye toward charging additional protesters.
