(de)Occupy Honolulu member jailed for blocking park crews

The group was protesting the city's stored-property rules

By Nelson Daranciang

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Oct 12, 2013

A state judge sentenced (de)Occupy Hono­lulu protester Madori Rum­pung­worn to 30 days in jail Friday for getting in the way of city crews enforcing the stored-property ordinance at Thomas Square last year. She essentially began serving the sentence Thursday after a jury found her guilty of obstructing government operations. After the jurors rendered their guilty verdict, Circuit Judge Patrick Border increased Rum­pung­worn's cash-only bail to $1,000 and ordered her into custody when she couldn't post it. Rum­pung­worn, a third-year Windward Community College student, had been free on $100 bail.
