As reported by the Associated Press, Ms. Kelly Carroll is being criminally prosecuted for an alleged violation of Washington Governor Inslee’s Stay Home Proclamation. The Angus Lee Law Firm has filed a motion to dismiss the criminal charges. Ms. Carroll has been singled out for prosecution on the basis of the exercise of her First Amendment right to protest the government in opposition to the Governor’s COVID Proclamation. The equal protection component of the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment prohibits prosecution based on one’s speech or political views.
