LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Eight people have pleaded guilty to misdemeanors after being arrested inside the state Capitol building during a December protest against passage of Michigan's right-to-work law.
Their attorney says they won't get jail time under misdemeanor pleas entered Friday to a Lansing district judge. They will be sentenced in September.
The eight defendants from the Detroit area were arrested and charged with felony resisting and obstructing after police said they tried to push past two troopers guarding the Senate door on Dec. 6.
Okemos attorney Randal Behrmann (BER'-muhn) says his clients pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted resisting and obstructing. If they stay out of trouble, the charge will be reduced further to disorderly conduct.

    Thugs! It was on the job training for them. They were not told how to do it without getting arrested.
