Arraignment: Friday February 9th, 10 AM in Dover
Del. activist seeks bail change
By Ken Grant, Staff writer
DOVER - Alan Muller, executive director of Green Delaware, wants to be allowed back inside of Legislative Hall.
Mr. Muller was arrested Jan. 16 and charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct for going into the House of Representatives Chamber after a Capitol Police officer told him not to.
As a condition of bail, Mr. Muller was ordered to "stay out of Legislative Hall" and have no contact with the governor.
Mr. Muller's attorney, David L. Finger, filed a motion Monday in the Kent County Court of Common Pleas to request a change to the condition of bail, calling the order to stay out of Legislative Hall both unnecessary and unconstitutional.
"This condition does nothing to ensure that Mr. Muller will attend trial, which is the primary function of bail," Mr. Finger said.
"This unconstitutional restriction serves no purpose other than to deny the people of Delaware an effective lobbyist for a healthy environment," he said.
Mr. Muller is scheduled for arraignment at the Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 9.
