The New York federal judge set to sentence Statue of Liberty protester Therese Okoumou is advancing through her case one rung at a time. In a Friday court order, U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein stated he sought to visit Liberty Island and examine the crime scene — with a ladder — from his own vantage point to “better appreciate the risks or hazards created by the defendant’s conduct,” reported ABC News.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The court would like a ladder to be made available so the court (and counsel if requested) can view, while remaining on the ladder, the surface of the area where the defendant was situated on July 4, 2018,” wrote Gorenstein.
Okoumou, 44, gained notoriety last Independence Day for partially scaling Lady Liberty in protest of President Trump’s family separation policies.
