Two Activists Agree to Settlement – ‘Tree Sitters’ Fined $60

Two of the four Arcadia so called “tree-sitters” who attempted to block the removal of acres of pristine woodlands in Arcadia earlier this year – Julia Jaye Posin, 23, of Venice Beach and Andrea Bowers, 45, of Los Angeles – pleaded no contest to one count each of trespassing in Alhambra Superior Court.
The two women were fined $60, and ordered to do 10 hours of community service.
The protest against the L.A. county flood control’s destruction of Arcadia woodland on Jan. 12 also included John Quigley, 50, of Glendale and Travis Jochimsen, 28, of Lancaster. These two are scheduled to appear in court sometime in July.
The women agreed to a settlement as prosecutors dropped their demand for more than $22,000 in restitution, lowered the fines from up to $3,000 to $60 and dropped the charge of obstructing a police officer.
