Last Thursday, Idaho's new Attorney General Raúl Labrador announced that he was moving to dismiss charges against Sara Brady.

She was arrested and charged with misdemeanor trespassing in 2020 in a Meridian park that was closed due to COVID-19. Labrador said the case was a “profound waste of precious taxpayer resources."

Meridian’s mayor and chief of police protested Labrador's move, calling it “political grandstanding” and saying it was a “slap in the face” to Meridian police and law-abiding citizens.
