UCSB Prof Pleads 'No Contest' For Assaulting Pro-Life Demonstrators

A feminist professor at UCSB has just pleaded "no contest" for assaulting two pro-life demonstrators on campus back in April of this year, reports LifeSiteNews.

​With a sentence hearing scheduled for August, professor of Women's Studies Mireille Miller-Young faces conviction on charges of grand theft, vandalism, and battery for stealing and destroying the sign of two sisters demonstrating pro-life messages in the school's designated "free-speech zone." One of the sisters also received several scratches on her arm when she tried to retrieve the sign back from the hostile professor after pleading she give it back. The professor's misconduct was also aided by several of her own students as seen in the video above.

After the incident, Miller-Young told police she had no regrets and that she had "set a good example for her students."

"Today's plea brings us one step closer to seeing justice done in this case," said Katie Short, an attorney. "Pro-life advocates should not be subjected to intimidation and violence for lawfully exercising their right to free speech, and we are happy to see that Ms. Miller-Young is being held accountable for her actions."

According to LifeSiteNews, UCSB has made no official apology for Miller-Young's actions.
