Courts - "Woman facing misdemeanor for video recording Utah slaughterhouse"

That's the headline to this story by Jim Dalrymple II posted this afternoon by The Salt Lake Tribune. A few quotes:

Amy Meyer, 25, faces a class B misdemeanor for agricultural operation interference. Prosecutors filed the charge in Draper’s justice court Feb. 19 after Meyer reportedly used her cell phone to film the Dale T. Smith and Sons Meat Packing Co. 11 days earlier. * * *

In a written statement sent to the Salt Lake Tribune on Monday, Meyer explains that she went to the slaughterhouse because she heard bystanders on public property could "witness the horror of cows struggling for their lives as they were led to their violent deaths."

Defense attorney Stewart Gollan said Monday that as Meyer stood on public property she used her cellphone to capture video of the facility.
