Maya Little reads her court statement across the street from where Silent Sam stood on Monday Oct. 15, after her court proceedings earlier in the day.

Silent Sam activists rally around Maya Little after verdict in Orange County court

Earlier in the day at the Orange County Courthouse, Little was found guilty of defacing a public statue or monument. She will not have to pay court costs or restitution. She had been charged with the misdemeanor after she poured red paint and her own blood on Silent Sam on April 30. Activists then gathered at the Peace and Justice Plaza at 7 p.m. for a "teach-in" on racism and social justice.
