Ojore Lutalo (New Afrikan Anarchist POW released from New Jersey State
Prison August 2009) had an arraignment this morning, Thursday January 28,
at 11 am in the La Junta City Courthouse. Ojore was formally charged with
“Interfering with Public Transportation, " a class 3 felony, based on
allegations from train passengers that Ojore made “terroristic threats
against the train” while on a personal phone call while he was a passenger
on the Amtrak train. Ojore has said that he was having a political
conversation with a friend at the time.

The prosecution initially asked for a $50,000 bond citing Ojore’s previous
”criminal” background and imprisonment as well as him being an out of
state resident.

The defense argued for a $1,000 bond citing Ojore’s links to the Denver
community and housing available to him as well as his previous
imprisonment being a “politically biased imprisonment”.

The judge ruled that Ojore’s bond would be set at $30,000, justifying this
amount because Ojore is an out-of-state resident, and in 1982 Ojore was
convicted of a failure to appear charge and presently posed a flight risk
due to this history.

Denver Anarchist Black Cross Federation members were present for the
hearing and are presently in La Junta working to bail him out. A bondsmen
has been secured that will post bond for Ojore at the cost of $4,500. This
cost has been fronted by various amazing folks from across the country,
but much of this money is being loaned. Ojore is in major need of
donations to help pay these loans back!

Also, Ojore has a February 5th court date

He did not plead, it was just an arraignment, and typically for jailable
offenses judges will not allow a plea from a defendant at the arraignment,
at least here in CO and other states I have lived.

And the charge is a Class 3 Felony.

--
Free Ojore!

The Prosecutor said that two people on the train overheard a telephone call in which they believe Ojore “made terroristic threats”. His political past was raised by the prosecutor, who asked for a high bail, which has been set at 30 thousand dollars, partially due to his being an out of state resident, plus having had a 1982 (they dug deep into his past) failure to appear in New Jersey. They also want him to sign a waver of extradition. My understanding is that the Public Defender was excellent. Denver ABC is talking to Bail bonds people right now, and is in need of funds. Anyone who can, please use the Paypal listed below. Tim will forward the money raised directly to the Denver folks so Ojore can be bailed out today, if at all possible.



He has a February 5th court date. Two members of the Denver ABC were there and told the court that they would welcome him to stay with them while awaiting his court hearing.
