University's attorney illegally attempts to prosecute case

A hearing that was to take place yesterday (Wednesday, Jan. 4) before a District Court in West Chester, Pa. concerning a trespassing charge against Michael Marcavage has been once again continued.

In October of 2005, Michael Marcavage was standing near the campus of West Chester University (West Chester, Pennsylvania) displaying a sign with the reality of abortion. University security cited Marcavage for "Defiant Trespass" for refusing to surrender his constitutionally protected rights to "free exercise of religion" and "free speech". The incident occurred during Repent America's annual pro-life evangelism tour.

West Chester University officials attempted to have their attorney argue the criminal case, which is prohibited by the Pennsylvania rules of criminal procedure. Authorization from the District Attorney's office is required for the university's legal counsel to proceed with the case.

The officers involved in charging Marcavage refused to argue the case themselves and requested a continuance, which was granted and scheduled for Wednesday, January 18, 2006.
