Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has announced her office is dropping all charges against protesters arrested for violating the countywide curfew.

Rundle said “I see no value in prosecuting these individuals and plan to drop all their cases in the absence of aggravating circumstances. Together, we can work to make Miami-Dade County a safe, secure and respectful community for all and a place where everyone’s voices are heard and valued.”

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez lifted the curfew on Monday.
