Pro-abortion activists who were arrested during a violent brawl in which pro-life activists were injured have been given community service and no criminal record.
Live Action Network reported that 22-year-old Natalie Hoskins III and 30-year-old Anthony Marvin were arrested last March after taking part in a violent mob that attacked pro-life students and activists who had gathered for a Students for Life event at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
A group of antifa-style protesters deliberately disrupted the event, assaulting attendants with signs, chanting vulgar phrases, and intentionally creating enough noise and chaos to shut the event down.
Ultimately, Students for Life said at the time, police detained the pro-life activists behind closed doors while the pro-abortion activists were allowed to disperse peacefully.
Of the two arrests made, Hoskins and Marvin were charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct, respectively, and each faced up to a year in prison and a fine. Neither were students at VCU when they came to protest.
Hoskins has reportedly completed 20 hours of community service and had charges against her dropped, while Marvin has completed 50 and met “other conditions.”
“Unfortunately, disruption at Students for Life of America events is all too commonplace,” Students for Life told Live Action. “Our team members and student groups often face severe hostility and intimidation from pro-abortion students on campus, and many school administrations either choose to ignore it or pile on themselves with censorship, unreasonable fees, and an intentional lack of peacekeeping.”
