A D.C. judge cleared activist Cindy Sheehan on a charge stemming from an anti-war protest in front the White House.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Robert E. Morin found Sheehan not guilty of crossing a police line in March.
Prosecutors showed a video of demonstrators lying on the White House sidewalk with mock coffins and Sheehan crossing a toppled police barrier. U.S. Park Police are heard warning protesters that their permit had been revoked.
Defense attorney Mark Goldstone told the Associated Press that the judge told the court that Sheehan was acquitted because she crossed the barrier after it was knocked down.
