The Rainbow Family of Living Light gathering in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest resulted in 121 violations issued by the U.S Forest Service, officials announced Wednesday.

Of these violations, thirty-seven were resolved by the defendants paying a fine, ranging between $25-$200 per violation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Fifty-eight violations were dismissed. Twenty-four of the defendants did not show up on their original hearing dates, and their violations remain unresolved.  

The remaining two cases have been scheduled for bench trials on September 23 and November 13, 2023.  

“The orderly resolution of these violations was a testament to the coordination of this office, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. District Court, who agreed to host these two special sessions,” U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young said, a quote directly from their statement.
