Shailene Woodley can breathe easy; she’s a free woman. For the most part.
“Divergent” actress Woodley has reached a plea deal with authorities, following her October arrest during a protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.
Under the agreement, a copy of which was provided to TheWrap by a representative of the Morton County, North Dakota district court clerk, Woodley will plead guilty to disorderly conduct, a class B misdemeanor. In exchange, she will receive one year deferred imposition of sentence and one year of unsupervised probation.
The actress had been charged with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot.
In all, 27 people were arrested in the protest, which occurred at a construction location. Most of the arrests were for criminal trespassing, though there were two felony arrests, for protestors who chained themselves to construction equipment.
The actress posted video of the protest on Facebook on the day of her arrest.
She reported seeing law-enforcement officers “with semi-automatic weapons” at the protest.
“It’s really actually quite hilarious to me. How can you deny clean water to so many people who are standing up and saying this is what they want? It’s just mind-blowing,” the actress said in the video.
