On January 7th, Sherrie Anne Andre will be going on trial at the New Bedford District Court in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The trial could last anywhere from one to three days. Sherrie is facing charges and potential jail time stemming from an August 2018 action that blockaded the entrances to the Bristol County House of Corrections.
The action was carried out in solidarity with people detained by ICE at the facility who launched a hunger strike to demand better conditions. Sheriffs reacted violently to the action, leaving Sherrie with serious injuries. Two people arrested at the action have already served ten day jail sentences. Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, a close friend of Donald Trump, has been pushing for the prosecution of Sherrie and the other people arrested at the action
