MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say they haven’t ruled out future charges against “Democracy Now!” reporter Amy Goodman from her coverage of a protest against construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota.
Morton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Donnell Preskey says the case is still “under review.”
Judge John Grinsteiner on Monday refused to sign off on a riot charge against Goodman, finding there was no cause for it. That came after prosecutor Ladd Erickson dismissed a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge against Goodman on Friday.
Erickson has said Goodman was acting like a protester when she reported on a clash between protesters and pipeline security last month.
Defense attorney Tom Dickson maintains Goodman was doing her job.
