Free the Lemonade Three!


In recognition of Lemonade Freedom Day, Will Duffield, Meg McLain and Kathryn Dill decided to sell 10 cent cups of lemonade on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol. Now they face jail time:

Will Duffield, Meg McLain and Kathryn Dill pleaded not guilty in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on Oct. 4 to "sale of goods on U.S. Capitol grounds" — a crime that carries a 180-day maximum prison sentence.

The three face an additional 180 days in jail after refusing to submit to a urine test and being held in contempt of court.
