News DV One Hearing, Sept 27, 2006
This morning, at the far too bright and early hour of 8:30 am, King County Courthouse was again filled with supporters of DV One, who came to listen in on his legal hearing. We thought the early hour might keep away some supporters, but the small courtroom on the 12th floor was filled to maximum capacity and spilled out into the hallway. The hearing itself was to enter DV One’s plea of “Not Guilty” and also for the judge to decide whether DV was likely to commit another crime before the trial and therefore would be required to post bail. The judge decided in favor of the defense — DV does not have to post bail, though the decision is more important symbolically as a sign that the judge felt DV could be trusted to a certain extent.
We talked to some of DV One’s supporters and the alleged felon himself.

This second clip features comments from Geologic of the Blue Scholars, who we cornered in the hallway before the hearing, and DV One after the hearing was decided in favor of the defense.
DV-one’s lawyer, public defender Lisa Daugaard, would not comment on whether they’re planning to press charges against the police for his injuries.
