Granite School District charged eleven anti-mask protestors in Utah with disrupting a public meeting. But they want to charge one more unidentified person. Now, they could face up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine.

The board had to cut its May 4 meeting short when about 40 protestors erupted into chants of “no more masks!” During the meeting, the board was seeking public comment on K-12 mask requirements in the district.

“There are repercussions for these actions and the board was unable to conduct its business as a result of these disruptive criminal actions,” district spokesman Ben Horsley said in a statement. “The board and district encourage civil discourse as we model appropriate behavior for our children and students.” According to him, some protestors facing misdemeanor charges are not even residents or patrons of the district.
