Among those arrested in Thursday's protest was Dr. Hugo Pecos, former lead scientist at the Institute. Dr. Pecos resigned his post in June in protest over Institute policy. Upon his release Thursday evening, Dr. Pecos told reporters that he plans to continue leading protests against the Institute. "The more attention we can bring to this issue, the better," he said.
The protestors are due back in court for a hearing on January 15.
Dr. Edward Westhead, CEO of the Santa Rosa Institute, did not return calls seeking comment.
