Dallas men facing criminal charges after protest

A pair of Dallas men who sought a marriage certificate are now facing criminal charges after protesting the state’s law banning homosexual marriages.

Homosexual marriages have been prohibited in Texas since 2005. The two men went to file for a marriage certificate that knowing they would be denied. In protest, the handcuffed themselves to one another and refused to leave the courthouse grounds.

They were charged with Class B misdemeanor criminal trespassing, which carries a fine of up to $2,000 and can land them in jail for up to 180 days. Similar criminal trespassing charges are given a Class C charge, which would have much more lenient penalties.

Class C misdemeanor charges are typically eligible for expungement. If you want to have all eligible crimes removed from your public record, contact the Dallas expungement attorneys from The Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter.
