Leonard Higgins' defense team Kelsey Skaggs of the Climate Defense Project, Herman Watson IV of the Watson Law Office, and Lauren Regan of the Civil Liberties Defense Center. Higgins was convicted of trespassing and criminal mischief for his role in last year's "valve turner" protests. Higgins and four others symbolically turned emergency shutoff valves on five oil pipelines in four states to call attention to the threat of global warming and the need to stop burning fossil fuels.
