12-Year-Old Among 9 Charged With Trespassing At Aero Contractors

Nine people were arrested Monday for trespassing at Aero Contractors at the Johnston County Airport . A 12-year-old girl was among those charged. The protestors were apparently trying to see three pilots and hand deliver “citizens arrest” warrants to them. A dozen deputies responded to the business after the protestors showed up. The American Civil Liberties Union and several human rights groups continue to call for a state investigation into Aero Contractors. They have accused the company of transporting terrorist suspects for the CIA to countries that allow torture during interrogations. Two dozen state lawmakers have joined the groups in calling for a state investigation. So far, Gov. Mike Easley has declined to investigate. The nine people arrested Monday were charged with second-degree trespassing after they refused deputies orders to leave the airport property. Photo by Carter Rabil
