One Greenpeace activist may plead guilty in P&G protest

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- One of the nine Greenpeace activists charged in a protest at Procter and Gamble's downtown headquarters may agree to a plea deal.
Police charged the protestors in March after they got into the building and used a zip line to fly banners from P&G's towers. They were protesting the company's use of palm oil, claiming it helps destroy tropical rain forests.

Prosecutors said today only one protester facing charges of burglary and vandalism has indicated a willingness to accept a plea which would involve no prison time.

Defense attorneys and prosecutors met in Hamilton County Judge Robert Winkler's chambers with no major breakthrough. No trial date has been set. They'll be back in court July 31.
