I don't understand this case. The police were called by the meat packing company, but the officer did not find the woman trespassing; nor did he find anything amiss with the fencing (which was barbed wire). When the woman asked if she was under arrest, the police told her no, but that they were investigating a crime. The law says that it's unlawful to film operations "while committing criminal trespass." So what was she ultimately charged with?
