Last October, we reported on how authorities arrested actress Shailene Woodley at the Dakota Access Pipeline protest (which was streamed on Facebook Live via her mother). Since her arrest, the star of Big Little Lies has remained vocal about the pipeline, encouraging everyone to come together and bring attention to what’s happening at Standing Rock, ND.
Despite her efforts to make everyone aware of what’s going down at Standing Rock, it seems like Woodley may have to limit future activism. Girlfriend just struck a plea deal for her arrest that will put her on probation for an entire year.
People also reported that Woodley will “plead guilty to one count of disorderly conduct in return for one year of unsupervised probation.” After her arrest, Woodley’s mug shot became a viral sensation. During her October arrest, the police charged Woodley with “misdemeanor criminal [trespassing] and one count of misdemeanor engaging in a riot.”
Law enforcement arrested 27 protestors that day, although there were more than 100 people at Standing Rock during the incident. So far it seems like the police have dropped the trespassing and riot charges after reviewing Woodley’s case.
As of now, Woodley’s representatives have not commented on the sentencing or how the probation will effect the star’s future projects.
