Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced Friday that there will be no charges filed against any of the 84 people arrested following Monday night’s East Sacramento protest.

The protest was held in response to Schubert’s announcement last Saturday that there would be no charges filed against Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet, the two police officers that killed Stephon Clark last year.

Those arrested included members of the clergy and media, as well as Sacramento State students, including The State Hornet news co-editor Will Coburn.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg released a statement Friday in response to the DA’s decision.

“Regarding the DA’s announcement today, I appreciate her decision not to file charges against Monday night’s peaceful protesters,” Steinberg said in a tweet. “It was the right thing to do.”

Sacramento Police Department also issued an in-response press release Friday, attaching pictures of cars it claims were damaged by protesters.

Also attached was a still from helicopter camera footage showing a protester Sac PD says “was observed walking and holding an unknown object that was on fire.”


“In the interest of community safety, protection of property and after multiple requests to disperse were made, officers proceeded with an orderly arrest process,” the release says.

“Throughout the course of the protest, 84 people were arrested for unlawful assembly. Of those 84 people, one person was arrested for unlawful assembly and for being in possession of a prohibited weapon.”

According to the press release, Sac PD is still conducting follow-up investigations regarding the protest and urged those with information or those with damaged property to contact the department at (916) 808-5471.
