It was back in August when former Waller County Judge and now activist Dewayne Charleston staged a protest in the lobby of the Waller County Sheriff’s office.
Charleston wanted to be arrested while protesting the death of Sandra Bland back on July 13, 2015.
The activist says he wanted to send a message that he should be jailed for his defiance but Bland shouldn’t have been arrested by a state trooper who pulled her over for a traffic violation.
Bland was later found dead in her jail cell and it was ruled a suicide by the medical examiner.
Meanwhile, Charleston entered a guilty plea and agreed to serve 12 days in the Waller County jail beginning today.
He spoke with the Factor by phone and he says his time behind bars is to show the world Sandy still speaks!
