Rather than plead guilty and accept fines, White House chain-males Lt. Dan Choi and Cap. Jim Pietrangelo both just plead not guilty and will have a trial. It’s been set for April 26. Choi, walking into court in handcuffs and Army fatigues, tells the judge: “not guilty, not ashamed, and not finished.” Oh snap! Both men have been uncuffed and are being released.
Statement after their release: “There was no freer moment than being in that prison.”
