Actor James Cromwell has pleaded no contest to disrupting a University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents meeting last month while protesting cat experiments at the school.
The 73-year-old Cromwell and another activist, 27-year-old Jeremy Beckham, were charged with disorderly conduct following the meeting on the UW-Madison campus Feb. 7.
Cromwell’s attorney, Marcus Jens Berghahn, entered no contest pleas on both men’s behalf Monday. A court commissioner ordered each to pay $263 in forfeitures and costs.
