Ten people who participated in a protest against Arizona's controversial SB 1070 law last year were found guilty of misdemeanor charges, a judge has ruled.

Justice of the Peace David Seyer said in his decision that the state had proved its case against the defendants and found them guilty of disobeying a police officer.

He scheduled their sentencing for Aug. 23.

Seyer could sentence them to up to four months in jail, a fine of up to $700 and two years of probation.

The defendants' trials were held June 17 and July 8. Seyer still has to decide the fate of six more defendants facing the same charge who went on trial Friday and Monday.
