Maria Louis Lewis Pleads Not Guilty To Snowball Charge

Maria Louis Maria Lewis pleaded not guilty during her arraignment today in D.C. Superior Court. She had been charged with assaulting a police officer during a snowball fight in front of Wonderland. Third District Commander Jacob Kishter had told City Desk that she would be charged with a felony. But her case was never papered by prosecutors as a felony.

Today, she was arraigned on one misdemeanor APO count. After her arraignment, she was released. She had been held for nearly 36 hours. Her next court date is in early March. [UPDATE, 5 P.M.: Her name is Maria Lewis, not Louis.]

"I expect her to be fully exonerated," says her defense attorney Janai Reed.

    The US Atty charged her with a misdemeanor to prevent her from requesting a jury trial ... because there's no way absent video of her taking aim, winding up, and hurling a snowball at the cop from close range that a jury would convict her. Now, she'll have a trial before a judge, and the prosecutors have to persuade only one person to get a conviction.

    Well the US Attorney is obviously a light weight and now by reducing the charges, I guess it's ok to assult a police office, either by snowball or something more psyicial.

    So now all of these immature trust fund children can continue to show disrespect for members of our law enforcement community and I say this because of the hateful comment on other pertaining columns on CP.

    She's done some time, and next time she and her friends want to cause a commotion in a residential neighborhood in the middle of the night, they might think twice. So in that way justice has already been served.

    Let me add to my comments above. In my comments about the first incident I asked a moron named, 'FreeMaria!', who thinks it ok to assult police officers and went on to call them, "Pigs". Back to the question, so is Maria a perminate resident of our city? To date no reply.

    So let me ask again, but while we are waiting for some lame answer here is my take. Maria is here going to school and living on Mommy and Daddies dime she is a spoiled ass trust fund brat, you know the trendy type that hard working people OF DC HATE! You are here in our city, my city, this is not Podunk Ohio, this is real life in the big city and if you do something stupid there are consequences.

    Police officers are out there risking there life day in and day out, out there dealing with these disrepectful morons and yes even protecting them.

    "Police officers are out there risking there life day in and day out, out there dealing with these disrepectful morons and yes even protecting them."

    These would, I assume, be the same cops who couldn't be bothered to help someone who was staggering into snowbanks in the street, despite being directly asked to do so by a citizen?

    In the middle of a major crisis, the police are using their ample resources to break up and arrest people throwing snowballs, while people who actually need help are left to die.

    How awesome is that?

    It is so ironic to me, that the only people present in all the cop-snowball incidents, who have any problem with the snowball fights at all, are, actually, the police themselves. Right.

    Seems like the only thing needing "protection" in this situation is the ego of a cop.
