Those set to return for their hearings also include Cornell student Malcolm Sanborn-Hum, who was arrested on Enfield Street off Baum Boulevard while objecting to the sudden disappearance of another protester, who was shoved into an unmarked brown sedan by a pair of men in camo fatigues and driven away.

Kyle Gilgen, 18, of Raleigh, N.C., agreed to plead guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct and will pay $1,278 in fines and court costs.
