A dozen UC Davis Occupy protestors connected to the shutdown of a U.S. Bank branch on campus were notified Friday by Yolo County District Attorney's officials to appear April 27 in Yolo Superior Court in Woodland.

The 12 protestors face a single count of conspiracy to commit a misedemeanor and 20 counts of blocking access in connection with demonstrations at the U.S. Bank branch on the University of California, Davis campus from Jan. 20 through Feb. 27, said Michael Cabral, Yolo County assistant chief deputy district attorney.

The consipiracy allegation carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail. Each access allegation carries a maximum six-month jail term.

Minnesota-based U.S. Bank closed its University Union branch Feb. 28, potentially severing an agreement with UC Davis that gave the campus its first bank branch. Bank officials later cited Occupy protests and the university's refusal to disperse demonstrators as reason for the closure.
