Lawyers for a Wisconsin woman who refused to wear a face mask at a middle school football game last year have filed for dismissal of the case.
According to NBC 15, the Hocking County Municipal Court says the motion for dismissal of the case against Alecia Kitts was filed on Monday. Just last week Kitts declined a plea deal in the case.
Kitts was originally charged with criminal trespassing and resisting arrest. The plea deal would have reduced the charges to just criminal trespassing.
Had she taken the deal, Kitts would have had to pay a fine and would be on no-contact probation for one year, during which time she would not be allowed to attend any Hocking County school sporting events.
Kitts was arrested for trespassing last September when she refused to leave a middle school football game between Marietta Middle School and Logan Middle School that was taking place at Logan High School.
She was asked to leave after she refused to wear a face covering, as was required by the school district.
When she refused to leave, a school resource officer told her she was under arrest, but she allegedly resisted and an officer used his taser on her and she was removed from the game.
