A judge revoked Tim Sommers’ bail this week and we’ll talk with two of his colleagues.

As we reported at the time, Sommers was first arrested for trespassing in Kiley Garden before dawn on November 6. He was given a trespass warning. But he was arrested again for trespassing along with 28 other Occupy Tampa members early in the morning of December 2 across Hillsborough River at Riverside Park.

We’re joined now by two of his colleagues, Ben Scharroo and Kade Kelly. Let’s begin with Kade – you were in the courtroom on Monday when the judge revoked Tim Sommers’ bond. Tell us what happened.
