Denver Jury Convicts 3 for Violating Homeless Camping Ban

The three then homeless individuals were convicted of violating Denver’s law banning camping on public property. The three have since called the ban a “survival ban” as they claim the law only allows them to wear basic clothes to deal with the elements. The sentences for all three included fines and probation. Randy Russell, one of the defendants who is still homeless, is just hoping he won’t be cited again. City officials have said there is enough space in shelters to house Denver’s homeless population, but people who have pets or do not want to follow shelter rules cannot stay in them.
