Halliburton Protester Acquitted

DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) -- A Tulsa woman who protested outside Halliburton's shareholders meeting last month in Duncan has been acquitted of violating a city protest permit.

Municipal Judge Carl Lamar says he could not find cause to convict 45-year-old Joni LeViness on the charge. However, the judge said he believed LeViness violated certain laws and could have been charged with trespassing or disrupting a police officer.

Fifteen others who were arrested outside the meeting pleaded guilty or no contest and paid an $89 fine. The Houston-based military contractor held its shareholders meeting in Duncan three weeks ago. Halliburton was founded in Duncan.
