    Crawford's attorney, John Viola, said the charges were the latest attempt by police and the district attorney's office to smear the Occupy Oakland movement. He said other examples included protesters being ticketed for blocking the sidewalk near City Hall and court orders that have been issued to activists to stay away from Frank Ogawa Plaza, the group's epicenter.

    "They want to break the movement," Viola said. "This is not an isolated incident."
