The 23 clergy members who were arrested in May for disrupting a session of the Missouri Senate are each now charged with two misdemeanors.
Cole County authorities charged the clergy members with obstructing government operations and first-degree trespassing.
They were among about 300 hundred people who briefly interrupted debate in the Missouri Senate on May 6 to protest lawmakers' refusal.
