HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Six people charged with trespassing at 4th District Congressman David Price's office were scheduled to go to trial Monday.

Laura Bickford, Ben Carroll, Alisan Fathalizadeh, Sara Joseph, Dante Strobino and Tamara Tal were arrested Feb. 16 at Price's Chapel Hill office as they demanded he vote against continuing to fund the Iraq War.

Price has requested that Orange County prosecutors dismiss the charges.
