Hearing continued for two charged with vandalizing Confederate statue

Two activists charged with vandalizing the statue of Confederate Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson had their case continued again Thursday.

Jesse Tobias Beard, 44, and Nicolas McCarthy-Rivera, 31, both of Charlottesville, were arrested at the statue in December.

Both are charged with felony vandalism and misdemeanor trespassing, according to police.

The case was continued Thursday in Charlottesville General District Court at the request of the defense, with no objections from the commonwealth.

Both Beard and McCarthy-Rivera are currently free on bond.

They both now have a hearing date on April 30.
